Sharif is tortured by his deepening passion for the impetuous Eliza MacKay in spite of her struggle with PTSD. Islam forbids the intimacy he craves. In desperation to save Eliza, Sharif initiates an act most forbidden and fatal.
During my career as a paramedic I came face to face with scenes most people would rather not think about. Having experienced life in the most deadly and gut wrenching events, and work with the police service, I have the fodder for creating intense novels.
I’ve studied French, Japanese, Spanish and a bit of Cree and Ukrainian. I can play the piano, accordion and guitar. I love to paint (oils and watercolours), knit, garden, hike, canoe, read and, most of all, I love my animals. I’ve raced snowmobiles and snowmobiled in the Rockies in Canada and USA.
The paranormal has followed me since childhood. My journey has led me to wild experiences during meditation, shamanic exercises, Reiki practice, and … a relationship with a variety of spirit guides. I manage to keep my feet firmly planted on the ground through loving my family, and being with special friends.
