"Turning History into Fiction" As a novelist  and former journalist, stories of real people have always fascinated me. There are challenges in recreating the lives of men and women who once walked the earth, especially those long gone, and it requires a combination of imagination, persistence, and detective work, How do we give life to a character who died 100 years ago?  Join me & find out.

"Finding the Extraordinary in the Ordinary in Nature" This challenges the notion of the bucket list of what experiences we wish to have in life– because much of what usually goes on  such a list excludes people with health or money issues. It presents another way of looking at the world that is more inclusive and that doesn’t necessarily require lots of money, excellent health or taking risks outside your comfort zone. It’s stories, observations and perspectives describe how a life of discovery and wonder can be experienced where we live and celebrating who we are.
