Welcome Readers!

Standard

Hello to my readers!

If you’ve arrived here, all safe and sound, then you’re probably wondering what this author might have to say, and the first thing is – THANK YOU!  All authors are a bit ego-centric, I think, so we want our readers to know a little bit about us.  So, (mighty gulp), here goes:

 

I was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, though I spent a lot of my childhood traveling.  Santa Barbara, San Diego, Reno or Las Vegas – we moved around a lot.  That love of travel never quite left me, and I’ve lived everywhere from California to Maine, including six months in Mexico!

Currently, I’m living in central California.  It’s June, and the weather should hit 99 today.  Yikes!  But, turn on the fan, and I’m still good to sit at the computer and write, or edit, or both.

My mom tells me I wrote my first poem when I was about seven:  “Someone has punctured the dark night sky, and the lights of Heaven are shining through.” Not bad, eh?  I’ve been writing pretty much all my life.  Poems, short stories, essays, book reviews, and books.

Oh, you say you want to know what I’ve written (so far)?  Sure, here ya go:
