Seven Written, One Published, One Being Shopped!
  • My Agent, Mary C. Moore, is currently shopping my upmarket historical novel, set in 1935, and–of course–involving a girl, an amazing car, and a grand adventure.
  • Also in Mary’s capable hands, my latest novel, set in 1950, 18-year-old Greet sets off on her 1936 Harley-Davidson to escape a violent family event from her childhood. But sometimes, no matter how fast the machine, the past catches up
  • My first novel published from Motor Palace Press–MOTOR DOLLS–is available now through my WEBSTORE or Amazon or Barnes and Noble online. Ebook available through Amazon only.


  • An exciting new historical fiction in the works, stirred by a real life person who is truly fascinating. Can’t wait to tell her story!
  • Also planning to finish a ghost story I started several years ago!

Feeling disconnected? Me too!! SITE CRASH!!

If you’re cruising around the site, and find disconnected images, there’s a reason why! Trying to clean up our hosting, a major file got deleted, and all my images were trashed! Gradually I’m rebuilding, so please be patient. Click the link to read more.

  • My Life in Black and White: Day 7 – Appreciate

    I have a lot of great things in my life, especially this guy right here. One of the secrets to maintaining a happy life and a happy marriage is to appreciate what you have around you and appreciate the one you’re with. Every day. Remember all the reasons you chose this person to spend forever with. (more…)

  • My Life in Black and White: Day 6 – Go Blank

    I had a stare down with a squirrel. That’s about as philosophical as I’m going to get today. Sometimes it’s good to just go blank, you know?

    It’s been stupid hot in Southern California, which meant my entire news week consisted of stories about weather. Friday, at least, took us to the beach–dog beach in Huntington to be precise. (more…)

  • My Life in Black and White: Day 5 – Small Moments

    It’s bathtime, one of my favorite times of the day, a chance to soak and relax and reflect–or to fall asleep, which I often do, waking up cold with water-crinkled fingers. Even so, it’s a daily ritual I love.


  • My Life in Black and White: Day 4 – Grit

    Grit. It’s the thing that keeps you going despite setbacks and frustrations. Even before my current shoulder challenge, my boss and I frequently discussed the characteristics of grit. We have similar philosophies on the topic, and lately, our talks have helped me through some of the difficulties regarding the new way I have to approach work, so I found it particularly bizarre that an Instagram ad came up in my feed for Best Self (a success journal), and a blog post entitled “5 Ways to Build Grit.”   Crazy timing, huh?
