Quote: “Although born and raised in Montreal a hundred years ago, I live in Cape Breton with my retired husband, two warring cats and a murder of crows. Our kids flew the coop long ago. I got into writing as a way to avoid housework and I’ve been on a diet for over fifty years with no success. I like to walk, read and collect old children’s books. It is my mission in life to hug as many animals as possible.
