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.
