About

I’m the mother of three grown children, and I’ve worn many hats in my life. At the moment I take care of three horses, three dogs and a foster pup, four cats, a wonderful husband and two hundred plus orchids and other house plants, including some modest bonsai. I’ve held a part time job for many years.
A visual person, I spent most of my life sketching and painting until the Ice Storm of 1998. We had no power for nine days in the depths of a Canadian winter and worked hard to keep the stove fires burning and the house from freezing. I didn’t sleep for the first three days, and no one slept well as the fires had to be manned (personned) 24/7.
After the Ice Storm, I couldn’t paint anymore. My part-time job had never thrilled me, but it provided windows where I could create if I managed my time very carefully. With no creative outlet, I drifted for awhile, until one of my sons invited me to join him in a Creative Writing Course. I’ve been writing ever since. I publish my poems and short stories here on wordpress, and am working on my first novel at a leisurely pace.

    Hi Louise, just seen your review of DEATHLOOP on amazon.com. It means a lot to me that you have taken the trouble to write it. I am delighted you enjoyed the book. I have a new short story out FOREVER GUY. It is free on Lulu, but for some reason Amazon has not reduced the price (!)

  2. Hi Louise: This is a site by a good guy who is self publishing and has some good info

    xThere are a lot of people who offer services for people who want to self publish. Many writers blog about their adventures. One good one is Ashley Barron

    I’ll send more when I think of some.

    Where do you live? That sounds stupidly cold. Also, why could you no longer paint? No wish to or physical impediment?

    Ontario, Canada. There are places far colder in the world, but here, it gets cold enough.
