In Brief . . .

I spent 46 spectacular years in Alaska before moving to Washington State's beautiful Olympic Peninsula.  During those years, I earned a graduate degree in English as well as degrees in history and education.  While teaching writing courses at the University of Alaska, I modeled class assignments by writing along with the students.

My stories and essays have been published in Seqribblers Gone Wild!, Volumes 2 and 3 of In the Words of Olympic Peninsula Authors, Life on the Margins and Other Stories, and Dribbles, Drabbles and Postcards.  I've completed one historical fiction novel that's now looking for an agent and am working on a new mystery series set in Restoration London.

Other than writing, my time is divided into reading (too much), cooking, boating, creaky-knees hiking, and gardening.
