My husband, Fred, and I are
retired and live in Claremont, California, a small town near Los Angeles. We raised our family in Virginia and were
happy to find a town on the west coast that reminded us of those southern roots.
Before becoming a freelance writer, I worked in the Dean of Students
Office at Claremont McKenna College. Previous to CMC, I was employed at General
Dynamics in Educational Services, acting as liaison with state colleges and universities. I have also worked as a consultant,
conducting workshops on Behavior Modification and Stress Management.
My articles have appeared in magazines such as Mature Living, Writers’
Journal and Woman's World and Chicken Soup for the Soul books. I have published articles
and short stories in several on-line magazines. I write book reviews and a weekly blog. My mystery, Desert
Soliloquy, is now available on Amazon in both print and eBook. My ghost story, Promises to Keep, the first book of The Haverford Trilogy, is also available. The second book of the trilogy,
Lydia, will be available in the fall of 2014 and the third book, True Abundance, in
I am a member of the Inland Empire Branch of the California Writers Club
and facilitate a writers’ critique group, where I enjoy the camaraderie of other writers.
