Bio ABOUT ME My formal learning began in a one-room school house, on the Canadian prairies, during the Second World War. There must have been something good about that. My curiosity got piqued, and I have never been able to get it unhooked. Over the next seventy-something-years, I’ve been satisfying my curiosity in many, more sophisticated settings, and I’ve been ‘around the block,’ a few times, in the school of life. In all these great institutions for learning, it was the interaction with people that made my day. And I had the privilege of doing this: in universities, technical schools, hospitals, clinics, cancer research centres, dentist offices and in the large classroom of the world. In the School of Hard-Knocks, I learned to recover from a terminal illness. The doctors gave me six months, so I had to be a quick learner. The many and varied hats I’ve worn astounds me: University Graduate; Registered Medical Technologist; Research Technologist; Teacher; Registered Massage Therapist and Energy Therapist; Office Manager; Author; Traveler. (The most memorable Traveler’s was my African Hat—4 months in the back of a truck, camping out through the Sahara Desert, through the savannah, through innumerable countries to arrive in Nairobi, Kenya for Christmas, not so clean in body but pure of soul.) And most precious is the ‘Easter Bonnet’ I wear as a daughter, a sibling, a wife, a mother, an aunt, a grandmother and a friend. Today, wearing the “WRITER’S HAT” is my passion.
