This month’s topic is “If I were a millionaire.” Well, I’m not. Far from it. But it’s fun to speculate about how I’d spend bags of money.
First, I’d buy a lake house. After my grandparents’ place was sold in my twenties, I’ve coveted my own piece of heaven. This luxurious property on Millionaire’s Row would do.
Each novel in my Hollywood in Muskoka series features a resort or lake house in Muskoka cottage country—the beautiful recreational area north of Toronto, Canada. I draw my writing inspiration from those summers at my grandparents’ lake house and subsequent vacation weeks at rented cottages.
My first summer job as a chambermaid at a Muskoka resort inspired Caught on Camera.

A Muskoka shop inspired Brigit’s SereniTea Shoppe in Seduced by the Screenwriter.

What draws us to waterfront property? The beach? Water sports? A place for extended family to gather and bond? All this and more.
My parents, sisters and I rented this old cottage with bunkie (sleeping cabin) that together slept 16. One bathroom + outhouse, an outdoor shower, and no TV.
We spent our precious days together mostly in or beside the water. Below my sister teaches our niece how to windsurf on a sailboard.
At night our kids had to play games that didn't require a screen.
Furry family members love being off-leash. Rudy inspired Caught on Camera's Mopette.
Yeah, it’s nice to dream of living in a palatial property, but I didn’t need to own one in order to create memories worth a million bucks.
