Norma grew up the youngest of five children in the small village of St. Louis, P.E.I. She and her husband moved to Kitchener 37 years ago, where, while working, they raised two sons, and then helped out with twin granddaughters. Norma started out working in a truck stop restaurant, then spent 20 years working in a factory manufacturing auto parts. Retired now, Norma enjoys writing short stories about her years growing up, and sharing them with her friends and grandkids. She especially loves Christmastime—and writing stories about it.
