When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I enjoy being out in nature, either alone or with kindred spirits. I appreciate opera even if it means spending a ten hour day to attend the San Francisco Opera. I'm interested in progressive politics and have walked for candidates or worthy causes.
What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy fiction with authentic historic or geographic backgrounds.. I like adventure travel books and some mysteries.
