Thanks for visiting my website!

Over the years my love of storytelling and curiosity about people led me to study psychology, volunteer on a crisis line, serve as a peer counselor for a family life organization, teach accounting and fraud investigation at a university, and tell stories about life, love, and secrets. I’ve been privileged to have given numerous workshops and courses to writers in Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada.

I live on beautiful Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada with the love of my life (41 years married and counting!) and our aging but energetic Australian Shepherd.

The other love of my life – writing and storytelling – has been an integral part of my life since I was 12 years old. I’m currently dividing my creative time between working on the first novel in a mystery series that’s fascinating me, and developing  multimedia courses  and videos for writers on my Storyteller Academy web site.  Take a look!

I love discussing storytelling, books, and the creative process, so don’t hesitate to post a comment or question here on the site, or contact me through Twitter or Facebook.

Have a great day, and take the time to read a good book!

Vanessa

  1. I’ve just been reading your “Writing Romance”. I’m very pleased that my first effort at the romantic novel has many of the elements you recommend.
    I look forward to your book being very helpful as I continue to chronicle the lives of the characters in “Fortune Cookies”
    Many thanks for your help!

  2. Hi there! I am enjoying your book “writing romance.” I’m finding it very helpful. However, I wanted to let you know that Charlotte Bronte did not write Wuthering Heights. It was Emily. Charlotte wrote Jane Eyre.

    1. You’re absolutely right!

      Thanks for catching my error. You’ve got a good eye. The interesting thing is that Writing Romance is in its third edition and you’re the first person to point out that error. Good catch. I’ve made a note in my revision file to fix it if we go into a fourth edition.

      Good luck with your writing.

      Vanessa
