For those who may not know much about me, I am Canadian, born and raised in and around Toronto, Ontario. I started writing shortly after the birth of my son, Jeffrey, mainly because I wanted to find a job where I could work from home. A very good friend and neighbour, Dianne Kelly, dared me to write a book, and, never one to refuse a good challenge...I did. It took me four tries before I wrote something that was publishable, but once that ball got rolling...the rest, as they say, is historical romance *g*
My son is 38 now, married to Michelle, with two beautiful munchkins of his own...okay, one is a diva and beautiful, the other is laid back and handsome. A few years back, I adopted Jeffrey's brother-in-law Kevin (his family is all out West) and through him and his wife Cindy, I have another munchkin running around, Carter, who considers me his Grammy and visa versa.
I recently went through an ugly and totally unexpected divorce after 35 years of marriage, which has changed a lot of things in my life. I don't take things for granted anymore. I've discovered the meaning and value of true friendship. I've reconnected with my sister and her family after too many years of keeping each other at arm's length. I've made new friends, found new pleasures in the small things in life, and learned not only how to roll with the punches, but how to put furniture together, how to buy a new furnace, and almost...almost how to cook for one *g*
I would love to have readers follow me on Facebook and Twitter (@marshacanham), and to read my occasional rambles on my blog.
I also design covers for ebooks, so if you're looking for a cover, cheap, check out my Cover Designs page.
I came across this quote from my absolute all time favorite person...and notice I said person not actress or celebrity...
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe less so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together." Marilyn Monroe.
That's pretty much where I am in my life right now. Falling together *smile*
