A California native, I now divide my time between Northern Nevada and Northern California because my husband and I have grandchildren in Nevada. We haven’t quite been ready to give up our home of twenty years, but spending time with family is important, so we do both.

I’m a stepmom and being a grandmother is an extra new experience for me because I’ve been there since the beginning of the children’s lives, and it has been wonderful. It’s also tiring, I don’t know how parents do it!

I’ve been writing for many years and have two novels published with The Wild Rose Press. The first one is a romance and the second one is a romance but veers towards women’s fiction. And if you know the difference, good for you! (LOL) The way I understand it, with the latter, the emphasis of the story is more on the woman’s life and less on the romance. This is what I most love to read, and I’ve been reading it for a long time without realizing it. I just thought they were books!

I’ve spent the last couple of years doing a lot of thinking, writing, and reading and have come to the conclusion that I want to write the women’s fiction genre. I have a book in the works, of course! And I can’t wait to share it with you. In the meantime I will be sharing some things about my life, traveling, and my journey with this book and my writing.

A word about the images on this page: The banner is an image I took on Easter Island, the subject of a recent blog post as well as a scene in my work-in-progress. The drawing is also mine, and it is something I’m working on as a possible logo. I drew it a few years back when I was working on a novel that I was going to turn into an online serialized book with illustrations. The reason I like it for a new logo is that when I went back looking for an image in my files that could work for a new logo, I saw this, and it struck me that it shows what I want to write about. I want to write about women coming into their own, reaching their unique destinations and really, fulfillment, in their lives.
