About the Book

This is a book of dedications of some of the people I associated with and who touched my heart through the years. We enjoyed one another’s company, especially when I was young, at our family cottage.

About the Author

I was born in Ottawa Ontario Canada, I lived there for my first 11 years then we moved to Montreal as my Dad was an Art Producer, Top Artist in North America in animation, and one of the top 3 Artists in North America. I lived there and was the youngest female bowler on the all-star team. I also bowled on TV for 25 weeks and was retired an undefeated champion. After 19 years I decided to move to Toronto, where I landed a job with Ford Motor Company as the First Woman Supervisor in a Plant that they ever hired it in the newspaper with my picture and a short story. I was injured on the job had surgery on my left knee. I then ventured into Real Estate and Property Management in the 1980s.
