She has worked in the media for more than 25 years – including stints as a books editor, but also in business, lifestyle, and national and city politics. She's worked at CTV and TVO, both as an editor/producer and reporting, interviewing, or producing shows on emerging artists, popular writers, and literary powerhouses. She's also lived and worked in Northern Ireland and feels that the books beat is the perfect marriage of her diverse experience and interests.


Author Cruises – On The Brink Of Madness

Good versus evil is the archetype to rule them all, but sometimes it can be hard to tell which side is which. From the minds of Nick Cutter, Ron Corbett, and David Demchuk come the grey-area battles of religious cults, assassins, biker gangs, cops, and monsters.

Little Heaven

Cover of Little HeavenAn all-new epic tale of terror and redemption set in the hinterlands of midcentury New Mexico from the acclaimed author of The Troop—which Stephen King raved “scared the hell out of me and I couldn’t put it down…old-school horror at its best.”

Nick Cutter

Ragged Lake: A Frank Yakabuski Mystery

Cover of Ragged LakeWhile working one afternoon on the Northern Divide, a young tree-marker makes a grisly discovery: in a squatter’s cabin near an old mill town, a family has been murdered. Detective Frank Yakabuski arrives in Ragged Lake to solve the family’s murder, but no one is willing to talk. With a winter storm coming, Yakabuski sequesters the locals in a fishing lodge as he investigates the area. Before long, he is fighting to stay alive and protect the few innocents left living in the desolate woods.

Ron Corbett

The Bone Mother

Cover of The Bone MotherThree neighbouring villages on the Ukrainian/Romanian border are the final refuge for the last of the mythical creatures of Eastern Europe–the Rusalka, the Strigoi, the Vedma, among many others. Now, on the eve of the war that may eradicate their kind – and with the ruthless Night Police descending upon their sanctuary – they tell their stories and confront their destinies.
