Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I've been writing and publishing mystery novels, short stories, personal essays, and articles for almost 30 years. I guess the most well-known publication I've been published in is Chicken Soup for the Bride's Soul.

Both books in my Alex Bellamy mysteries centre around white collar crime and take place in Vancouver, and other areas of the Lower Mainland that I don't think anyone's ever written about.

I've worked at a variety of clerical jobs over the years, raised a family, then returned to work in retail for five years. Right now, I'm spending most of my time writing.

I live with my husband, our two kids, and a menagerie of pets, including our new black lab pup named Baily.

My newly released mystery, FATAL ENCRYPTION is available from amazon.com. Excerpts can be read at my website.

Cool. I just ran into another writer on ning from there.
It's part of the Vancouver area, right?

Port Moody sounds like a good place for writer.

One of the most satisfying things about being a writer, especially one who's been writing nearly thirty years, is sharing and encouraging and appreciating the work of others. Where would I be without you all?

Hi Debra,

Thank-you very much for your kind comments about Secret of the Sands! I am so happy to hear that you are enjoying the story :) As you know, that kind of thing always makes an author's day!! Your support & friendship means a lot to me...


Your book, Fatal Encryption, sounds like such a great read too, it is in my TBR pile, and I will be happily diving into its pages soon...

I hope you are having a good weekend. Let's keep writing, sharing, promoting, learning...I look forward to the day when we become bestselling authors!!

Your friend,

Rai Aren, co-author of Secret of the Sands

I've gone the other way and found it to be torture, actually.

It's almost (not quite) like my current model is write the script first, then make a novel out of it.

Another advantage is that this forces a tight story structure. Of course, that can also be a disadvantage.

The first one I did drew a lot of "this is too stark, reads like a screenplay" remarks from agents and pubcos.
My latest doesn't have that problem.
(It's problem is being a romance that most romance readers would decidedly not see as such)

Actually, the project I just finished was a novel based on my TV series scripts, not the other way around. :-)
It's the third script I've "novelized"

(A LOT easier and more fun than chopping novels down into screenplays, lemme tell ya.)
