Growing up in Hollywood, it's no surprise I love watching classic black-and-white movies, especially film noir with snappy dialog. I spend hours writing without realizing half the day is gone and I haven't made the bed! Potato chips and herb tea sustain me through writing binges. Our two Golden Retrievers, Hannah and Bodhi, are my faithful assistants.
I get ideas for my books from life and what is most meaningful to me. Many personal experiences were included in "GOOD FORTUNE" and all the dogs mentioned in "VANILLA GRASS" are our Golden Retrievers--past and present. I've recently begun a third novel from a short story I wrote some years ago. Stay tuned!
In 2005 my husband and I relocated from southern California to the Puget Sound in WA state. We live in the country surrounded by tall evergreens, coves and small islands. The fictitious location of Ships Cove, WA where "VANILLA GRASS" takes place is loosely based on where we live.
I’m a member of Friends of the Library, Lakebay Writers, and a volunteer for Evergreen Golden Retriever Rescue.
