Welcome to Stories


The site has various rooms for you to explore my writing, my photography.

In my poetry room you can find my one and only published collection of poems and a few other collections and long poems. In my story room you can find my published stories and stories that placed in contests. In my guest room you can find links to other sites of friends and loved ones, who have something worth while to share.


In my dark room you will find a collection of pictures that I have taken over the years. I am strictly an amateur photographer so most of the pictures you will find there have been taken with the intent to capture images that I can then use in my writing. These pictures were taken by reasonably simple cameras and have been edited for the purpose to find the story that captured me.

A bit about myself


I grew up in Flanders, Belgium. As a young adult I came to Canada and adopted the English language. I live in Guelph, Ontario, where together with my husband I raised three children. Between work and raising a family,

I attempted to honour my creative impulse. Amongst the jobs that had their deepest impact on me were a stint at a home for developmentally delayed adults and a decade and a half at a couple of shelters for abused women and their children.


Besides holding a Belgian degree in Social and Cultural Work, I attained

a Master's of Arts from Queen's University. My subject: literature of the English speaking world.


Now that I am retired, I devote most

of my time to writing. I take part

in Brian Henry's intense writing workshops (Quick Brown Fox) and

I also take part in a smaller spin-off group right here in Guelph.



I would love to hear from you:
