Born in  Denzil, Saskatchewan, the eldest of six children her parents were farmers.

Her first passion was reading, reading every Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and Bobbsey Twins book ever published. Sneaking off to the outhouse with a book was a favorite trick - sometimes it worked for an hour or so till she was discovered.

The progression to cookbook seemed natural. Initially published in 1989, Cooking Country Style has been revised and is in its fifth printing.
