I hang out with entertainment icons. Carol Burnett is everything you hoped she would be. Same for Mary Tyler Moore and Hugh Jackman and Faye Dunaway (not in a cool way, Faye!) and James Franco and Julie Andrews and Betty White! Okay. Enough name dropping. I also got to write fun books (really hot suff, based on my life in this amazing town!). Now I get to write for Disney and a bunch of other production companies. Wow! Amazing place this Hollywood!

Living full time aboard a sailboat generates one of the most balanced perspectives possible. It eliminates the noise, compelling you to focus on the most basic day-to-day needs.Next to food, water and energy, much of that other stuff we used to fret about seems hardly worth the effort. The bad news? Living a simple life in paradise takes a lot of time, and time runs differently here. The good news? When I write, this viewpoint lends my work a fresh flavor. Whether I'm publishing an ebook for a client, consulting about social media use, or advocating a healthy lifestyle, I bring a unique set of problem-solving skills.

Hello, I am glad you dropped by to read my Bio; I hope you find it interesting.
I was born in the cool, wet climes of Scotland where I spent most of my youth going to school, playing rugby but best of all learning to play golf as it was once played many years ago with fun, laughter and daring. However, my ambition was to learn engineering and apply it to the human body. So after many years of studying I graduated with a BS in Chemical Engineering then a PhD in BioMedical-Engineering. I spent many interesting months in the open heart surgery operating rooms designing systems to control the flow of blood to artificial lungs which then became the basis for my thesis.

On the rare occasions that she does stop having sex she sucks down energy drinks by the gallon and takes her dog for walks.
