I am 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 novels, Desert Soliloquy, Promises to Keep, Lydia, and True Abundance are available on Amazon.


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.
