Award-winning author, J..L Canfield, has recently released her third novel. Hiding Behind Robes is the second work in the Philip Samyn series.

She wrote her first play in second grade. That started her flexing her creative muscles as much as possible. She has designed clothes, furniture and rooms in homes. Created floral arrangements, headpieces, and curtains. Life to her is an endless journey of finding barren places, then beauty to fill it.
