I grew up in a small town in the Pacific Northwest
not far from the sparklie vampires.
It was very isolating.
I eventually found my home here in Los Angeles: color, diversity, culture, mountains, ocean, deserts, valleys, opportunity, happiness ~
it’s all here in abundance.
Friendly by nature.
Chocolate Pie Disciple.
Life is too short to be a snob, a cynic or a critic.
I’d rather be an explorer, a contributor, supporter, and cookie-eater.
I have a softspot for cats.
I travel the world a lot with my film-maker hubby on his press and research adventures,
and I share those here, too. As a sheltered kid, I never dreamed I’d ever break out
and see places like Tokyo, Venice, Nairobi, Paris, Sydney, Florence, Madrid, Budapest, Prague or Barcelona.
Travel has had a dramatic impact on my life and my writing.
I actively support the little furry things that can’t speak for themselves,
and also the big grey things that trumpet and flap their ears.

. . . Enjoy its highs, you said.
. . . The summer flies, you said.
So make a parade of every moment. ♫
