For most of my adult life, Monterey has been my haven. My family and I frequently visit my brother Michael and his wife Deirdre for searching ventures in the tide pools, hunting for wild strawberries in the surrounding forests, and walking through the redwood trees to driving Big Sur. It is truly an idyllic place to visit and live.
It is the perfect setting to read a good book, 'Travels with Charlie' and for John Steinbeck.
As a research scientist & author, having written six books, I currently reside in New Mexico, Nevada and Utah with my husband, daughter and son. My degree(s) and career experience professionally are in environmental science, cytogenetic technology, environmental biology and wildlife biology. I obviously love to write, naturally, and travel. (And putting together the BLURB coffee table picture books in my spare time are also kind of fun.)
