Living the dream on my own terms.

About Anne

Instead of going into academia after earning my Honors Anthropology degree from Concordia University, I dove head first into the thoroughbred horse racing industry. I worked my way up to professional handicapper to the Editor of “Post Time,” to a stint as Administrative Director of the American Championship Racing Series which was televised on ABC’s Wide World of Sports and ESPN.

Not one to shy away from change, I decided to leave what I saw as a stagnant industry and moved to Bend, Oregon, in 2000. I secured a gig at the largest private healthcare clinic in Central Oregon, which I then parlayed into my own business, “Customize Your Quit: Tobacco Cessation For Life.”

I am now the proud owner of a beautiful mini-farm on Salt Spring Island off the coast of British Columbia. The one constant in my life since childhood has been my love of writing.

The dance floor pulsates and the air is electric. Muscular ebony bodies — bare chests out — draped in gold chains, gyrate like sex gods. Have I died and gone to heaven?
