I have lived in the Midwest, on the East Coast and now I live on the West Coast. My novels are set in places similar to where I have lived but never exactly. These are works of fiction not biography, although occasionally real people make cameo appearances: friendly nods to my family and friends! I love to write but find everything to do with publishing and marketing very difficult. I mostly write about ordinary people having interesting experiences.
