Dale was brought up in Port Severn, Ontario in the Georgian Bay area. The area was and still is barely a dot on the map and did not have the conveniences like a big city. One thing lacking was television stations. With only one station you had to learn to read early in life to ward off boredom. Her mother, an avid reader of a good romance, passed on to her the love of good books.
Many years later and now living close to the city of Toronto, with all kinds of TV stations that still have nothing on, she still spends her time reading (when not working at her other day job) and has accumulated a huge collection of paperback books. The best thing for her was when e-books came on the market, now her Kindle stores the numerous books she reads each week.
Married with one daughter who also writes in this genre under the pen name Jade Belfry, she lives with her husband and two very spoiled Chihuahuas.
