I have always enjoyed writing and art, but my career choice was Nursing. I worked over 20 years as a registered nurse, primarily in the Intensive Care Unit and in Oncology. When I retired from Nursing I was able to focus on other interests. I discovered that I still loved the arts, and I wanted to better learn the craft of writing. I completed a course of study through Long Ridge Writer’s Institute under the tutelage of Edgar Award winning author Carolyn Wheat, as well as several other published writers, I began to write stories that readers enjoyed. Additionally, my nursing experience has helped me to create realistic medical scenes and to add authenticity to the character's voices.
I found myself doing some illustrations for my writings, and with some encouragement from my local church, I took some art classes. After several years of part-time study, I was able to obtain a degree in Illustration through the Academy of Art Institute in San Francisco.
