I come from a long line of everyday writers and verbal story-tellers, and I believe those two traits finally came together in me.  I wrote my first poem at the age of ten and haven’t stopped writing since, if you don’t count the twenty years I took off to raise four kids.

After nearly 20 years in South Carolina, I recently moved back to the California farming community in which I grew up, where I will continue writing, repairing old dolls, growing roses, and enjoying the love and support of family and friends.
