Biography

~ I’m a lefty ~ My blood type is A+ ~ I’m a vegetarian ~ I love to knit and draw ~ I hate to cook and clean ~ I’m married ~ I have two college age kids who I’m thrilled to report still need me ~ I am passionate about animals ~ I will protect and defend any underdog (be it canine, human or other kind who doesn’t have a voice) ~ I love to fight for causes and boycott what’s just not right ~ I’m a hippie deep, deep down ~ I love color and use the word “groovy” way too often ~ I love a good book; dialogue fascinates me because it’s not easy when you try to give tone, emotion, and nuance to a whole bunch of letters pieced together just to make a point ~ I love to laugh; I really, REALLY do. And it’s not a delicate, feminine laugh; I really mean it when I laugh ~ Oh, I almost forgot, I also love to write and hear from my readers…

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Wow. That's a tough one. I grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, AND in the United States. It was a back and forth kind of thing. But then I married a military guy, and we've lived in so many wonderful places, that even though I didn't 'grow up' in those places (although I'm not sure I'm done growing up), I feel with every place to which I've been, and that every person I've met, has influenced me in one way or another. So I'll credit other places where I've lived, since I can't credit each and every person. I'm still growing up and have lived in Germany, Brazil, Japan, and Honduras. I've also done a lot of traveling in Europe, Central and South America, and in the United States. If I haven't mentioned your favorite place, I'm sure I'll add it soon. I love to travel!
When did you first start writing?
At age 37, just like Erma Bombeck.
