Together we can make a difference!

Each Print Copy Sold Will Help!


So thrilled to announce that I am partnering up with The LifeLine Canada Foundation in working toward suicide prevention among out teens!

This is a personal cause for me as for the past three years we have lived within the nightmarish hell of suicidal intentions and depression with one of our teen daughters.

The LifeLine Canada Foundation is a wonderful resource for both parents and teens who need help.

BUY a print copy of The Forgotten Ones and I will personally donate 50% of my earnings to this charity!
