This is a true story! Well, I admit, I've embellished it somewhat, but it is based on the real personality and mishaps of a child while growing up. She was notoriously clumsy! When she asked her parents if she could take ballet lessons, they were doubtful, but she learned through the discipline of this classic dance to overcome both physical and emotional obstacles. The story has a happy ending. Of course!
Born in Southern California, studied three years at the Sorbonne in France, lived twenty years in Mexico, where I raised my three sons and worked at a variety positions, as French and English professor, graphic illustrator, copywriter, translator/interpreter, and aquatic resource assistant, while pursuing my fine art on the side. My greatest loves are the Faith, my family and the arts. Returned to Northern California in 1983 to continue raising my family while working as a language teacher/interpreter/translator. Now living in San Diego, California - full circle to my birthplace and ready to write the next chapter. My love of challenge continues to inspire my writing, art and life itself, as past hardships overcome have made me stronger and more eager to face new challenges. Life's motto: "Happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you get."
