Bea was born and raised in Charlotte, NC, and though she has visited other cities and states, she has a preference for Charlotte and expects to live there for the rest of her life.
She is a teller of tales who enjoys concocting yarns of science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, and other stuff. She also relishes reading, drawing and painting, walking, and working crossword puzzles.
She is a retired electronics technician and admits to having worked at a variety of other jobs during her life, including being a dishwasher, a busgirl, a housemaid, a motel/hotel maid, working in a fast-food joint, a telephone operator, and a store clerk. There have been other, even-less-glamorous jobs, including picking cotton.
She is also a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who daydreams a lot and likes to dance.
