Author Biography

Hi, I’ve always been intensely private. Now, I’d like to be a little more…well, public. So…I wrote a book. I thought that was a natural next step. A few other facts:

I love photography, music, art, hiking, adventure travel and frozen hot chocolate. I dislike gravity.

My elementary school report cards consistently said that I had “a tendency to daydream but I played well with other children.” Not much has changed.

I have two children. I am fond of them . I’ve worked on Madison Ave and in Hollywood.

I’ve worked with many writers and since it seemed like so much fun, I thought I’d give it a try.

I live in LA. I love the traffic and hate the sunshine. I’m dyslexic.

I hope you have as much fun reading these stories as I did writing them!
