Heads Up!

“Chin up.” Is an old expression adults would say to kids who were feeling sad or disappointed. It was an attempt to lift the child’s spirit out from their misery.

A Penny For Your Thoughts

After we joyfully make a wish and playfully toss a penny in a wishing well we curiously watch where it lands before we walk away feeling satisfied.

About Me

All roads led me here. I started out as a product illustrator, then a graphic artist, then into classical animation before becoming a stay-at-home Mom. After 20 years of cartooning I finally did what many people say they want to do but never actually get around to doing it – I wrote and published a children’s book!

Did You Call For Me? is a fun and humourous read with lots of rhythm, rhymes and adorable characters. It is an ideal pick-me-up that is sure to turn any child’s frown upside down.

Dinner Theatre Scripts

Interested in puttin’ on a show?
I have been involved in dinner theatre since 2008. In 2010 I wrote my first 20 minute skit; Living in the Boonies, for a private function ~ it was well received. [And hard to believe that I was the entertainment for the night!] Since then I have written six more comedies;
Welcome to Corridornia
The Next Big Star
Seniority Rules
Mrs. O’Lander’s Brew
A Royal Heist, and
The Oak Island Mystery

All plays are approximately an hour in length and are divided into three acts to allow for a three course meal to be served by the players. Most evenings run about 2 – 2 1/2 hours.
