About the author:
I am a 71 year old woman residing in Woodstock Ont. Canada. I have three amazing children, two sons in law, and one daughter in law who are just like my own. I brag about my grandchildren a thirty-one year old granddaughter and an eleven year-old grandson. Ron and I were married at nineteen and have been married fifty-two interesting and adventurous years.
A severe car accident thirty six years ago caused by a drunk driver robbed me of my careers and left me to live the rest of my life with chronic pain. Until then I was a successful hairdresser, make up artist and a model.
To help deal with the daily pain I taught myself to paint. First on clothing, then on walls, wooden pieces, stone and now on canvas.
It came as a surprise when that my son in law suggested I write about the hairdressing stories I had been telling for so many years. I have been writing poetry for as long as I can remember but writing a story was foreign to me. I am hoping these stories will inspire someone to live their dreams too. I want to pass my strength on to others.
I am working on a sequel for A Hairdresser's Diary and have published a book of original poetry Versify.

A Hairdresser's Diary
By looking into the mirror of others, we come to see the reflection of ourselves.

Hairdressing is an act of transformation. We search for the hairdresser that can change us with just the right cut, just the right style.
When we find our hairdresser, we make a new friend, often telling them stories about our lives that we don't share with everyone. They become the keeper of our diary. Sometimes we wonder what the world looks like from their eyes. The Hairdresser's Diary lets us read those stories, starting with the hairdresser's own.
This book is the story of a little girl who through a childhood full of struggles, hardships and pain had a dream. That dream was to someday become a hairdresser. Follow her as she trades her dollies in for the real thing.This is the diary of a hairdresser who had a calling and a great memory. It is filled with stories of pain, sadness,gossip, angst, triumph, challenge and most of all, humour.
This is more than just an ordinary book of hairdresing stories. There are times I will jog our memory and lessons to be learned. You will read things about hairdressing you may have never imagined. You might even look at your hairdresser in a whole new light after reading this book. Come sit in my virtual chair and enjoy the ride.
