Gail has self-published 8 books: “The Angelic Heart”, “Blowing Kisses”, “An Agricultural Safari in Brazil and Argentina”, “Garden Memories In The Web Of Life”, “To Have A Cup Of Tea With a Cat and Other Cat Tails” as well as “Angel Witness”. She has produced two colouring Books, “Flowercat” & “Doodle Ladies”.

Gail is a poet and photographer and calls herself, “The Passionate I”. Gail is a storyteller above all else using “life” as her subject matter. Her poetry and short stories have been enjoyed in many circles. Writing has been a true expression for her highly-tuned empathic self. She writes as the messages flow in the middle of the night, while on vacation, while feeling life’s joys and sorrows or jots down titles that need contents which follow at a later date. As she sees it, her “automatic writing” is her gift from God.

Gail is a second cousin to the late Lotta Dempsey who wrote for The Toronto Star, and whose work is world famous making a significant contribution to Canadian journalist writing. The two women never met but corresponded before Lotta's death, with Lotta giving Gail advice and direction. Gail’s love of writing began when she was 16 years old and has kept her attuned to her destiny all these years.

A wonderful story...

I'm A Little Tea Cup
(Author Unknown)

You will never think of drinking a cup of tea in the same way again.

There was a couple who took a trip to England to shop in
a beautiful antique store to celebrate their 25th wedding
anniversary. They both liked antiques and pottery, and
especially teacups. Spotting an exceptional cup, they asked
'May we see that? We've never seen a cup quite so

As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke,
'You don't understand. I have not always been a
teacup. There was a time when I was just a lump of red clay.
My master took me and rolled me pounded and patted me over
and over and I yelled out, 'Don't do that.'
'I don't like it!' 'Let me alone,'
but he only smiled, and gently said; 'Not yet!'

Then WHAM! I was placed on a spinning wheel and suddenly
I was spun around and around and around. 'Stop it!
I'm getting so dizzy! I'm going to be sick!', I
screamed. But the master only nodded and said, quietly;
'Not yet.'

He spun me and poked and prodded and bent me out of shape
to suit himself and then he put me in the oven. I never felt
such heat. I yelled and knocked and pounded at the door.
'Help! Get me out of here!' I could see him
through the opening and I could read his lips as he shook
his head from side to side, 'Not yet'.

When I thought I couldn't bear it another minute, the
door opened. He carefully took me out and put me on he
shelf, and I began to cool. Oh, that felt so good! 'Ah,
this is much better,' I thought. But, after I cooled he
picked me up and he brushed and painted me all over. The
fumes were horrible. I thought I would gag. 'Oh, please,
Stop it, Stop, I cried. He only shook his head and said.
'Not yet!'.

Then suddenly he put me back in to the oven. Only it was
not like the first one. This was twice as hot and I just
knew I would suffocate. I begged. I pleaded. I screamed. I
cried. I was convinced I would never make it. I was ready to
give up. Just then the door opened and he took me out and
again placed me on the shelf, where I cooled and waited and
waited, wondering 'What's he going to do to me

An hour later he handed me a mirror and said 'Look at
yourself.' And I did. I said, That's not me; that
couldn't be me. It's beautiful. I'm beautiful!!!

Quietly he spoke : 'I want you to remember, then,'
he said, 'I know it hurt to be rolled and pounded and
patted, but had I just left you alone, you'd have dried
up. I know it made you dizzy to spin around on the wheel,
but if I had stopped, you would have crumbled. I know it
hurt and it was hot and disagreeable in the oven, but if I
hadn't put you there, you would have cracked. I know the
fumes were bad when I brushed and painted you all over, but
if I hadn't done that, you never would have hardened.
You would not have had any color in your life. If I
hadn't put you back in that second oven, you
wouldn't have survived for long because the hardness
would not have held. Now you are a finished product. Now you
are what I had in mind when I first began with you.'

The moral of this story is this : God knows what He's
doing for each of us. He is the potter, and we are His clay.
He will mold us and make us and expose us to just enough
pressures of just the right kinds that we may be made into a
flawless piece of work to fulfill His good, pleasing and
perfect will.

So when life seems hard, and you are being pounded and
patted and pushed almost beyond endurance; when your world
seems to be spinning out of control; when you feel like you
are in a fiery furnace of trials; when life seems to
'stink', try this.

Brew a cup of your favorite tea in your prettiest tea
cup, sit down and think on this story and then, have a
little talk with the Potter.

Gail in the Garden of Life

“An Agricultural Adventure In Brazil & Argentina”
was born out of fifteen days spent on buses and planes with a tour group of agricultural experts, traversing both countries to witness the significant contributions of the Southern Hemisphere in the agricultural game of life.


“Blowing Kisses”
was a series of poems written in a marathon of fourteen hours while at the cottage as a dedication for her husband’s 50th birthday. Along with it we also find photos taken by the couple. This is a personal tribute to love.



“The Angelic Heart”, contains poems and stories on the spiritual side of life with a very strong emphasis on the angelic world. Along with this is a parade of angel photos, which Gail uses as the basis for a line of angel photo art greeting cards.
