A military brat, I am the oldest of five. I have lived in several states but spent most of my childhood in the Orient and Europe. I received my BA in psychology from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I have served as a soldier and worked a wide variety of jobs from sales to construction to the medical profession. I was a single parent with three daughters, all of whom have gone on to college and are pursuing their own dreams. My hobbies are reading, astronomy and many of the other sciences to include neuroscience, history and most things geeky (Star Trek, Dr. Who, etc.), sailing, hiking, and observing people (and not in the creepy way). I currently live in Florida where I have completed the first of four planned novels.
