Marlie has Arrived


Adventure, drama, love, lust. You’ll find all this in my latest novel, Marlie, set in the Queen Charlotte Islands, or Haida Gwaii, as they are now called.

Unlucky in love, Marlie flees a bad relationship. She accepts a teaching job in the remote Queen Charlotte Islands. The beauty of the islands and the rugged challenge of northern living enthrall her. A good-looking artist has his eye on her. The perfect gentleman. Or is he? And what about that handsome fisherman? Is he just a bit too real for her with his hunting and fishing? Just as Marlie hopes that her life has made a turn for the better, disaster strikes. She is shocked to see her life spiraling downwards yet again. How could she have made such an error in judgement—an error that sets more bad luck in motion?

Not willing to lose control, Marlie takes a deep breath and sets out to get her life back on track. But can she do it alone?

Set in the remote islands of coastal British Columbia, Marlie is a heartfelt romance of love and loss and love again.

Experience the fears and joys of northern island living and delight in a second chance at true love.

    Let’s try and have at least a phone call when we are back in Nanaimo for three weeks in December/January. We have a new number since our move…250-xxx-xxxx

    • I think so, that it’s a story a man could also enjoy. It’s a rough life up there and that could appeal to a wide range of readers. My friend Jan did the painting and when I saw it on her wall, I knew that was Marlie. She kindly let me use it for the cover.

    • That’s really strange! I wonder what happened. I didn’t do anything different except change the header image to something more Christmassy. But that shouldn’t have made it difficult to open. Well, I’m glad it finally worked and thank you for keeping on trying.
      It really is exciting to finally have my Marlie novel out there. Thanks. Have a wonderful week.
