Hi! I’m Colleen and I’m so glad you stopped by.
I live in Camrose, Alberta, with my husband, two boys, and a dog. My life is a simple one and I take pleasure in the smallest of distractions. A cloud, a butterfly, the light filtering through the trees. My former life as a paramedic has taught me to appreciate life and all the little wonders around. You just never know when it will all be taken away so smell the flowers, get lost in the clouds, gaze at the stars, eat the cupcake, and drink the wine. Life’s too short not to.
My passion for writing has only been a recent development. I’m a bit of a late bloomer as they say. I have always loved a good book but writing one never crossed my mind. One day I woke up and thought “Why don’t I write a book”? Once that idea took hold in my brain, there was no denying the call to write. So write I did and once that faucet started flowing more and more ideas came pouring out.
At the moment, I choose to write science fiction/fantsy adventure books for middle grade readers. My stories tend to fall on the softer side of science fiction with a touch of fantasy. I aim to create relatable characters and stories that hopefully will help kids through a tough stage in their life.
