I'm originally from California, south to north. I taught ESL for 8 years in Colombia, South America and then settled in Houston, TX. Settled isn't quite right; Houston is where I've chosen to ride out life's roller coaster.
Completing my novel is my bucket list. Short stories help whenever the big story isn't cooperating. My novel is set in a Colombian jungle full of cartels, guerillas and missionaries. I may need to pack up my laptop and jeans and head for destinations unknown for exotic inspiration.
