My Bio Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. After 4 years in Seattle, WA, getting a bachelor's degree in photography from the Univeristy of Washington, I commenced a dual role of professional musician and public relations director. A few years later I started selling real estate, and after 12 years of that, became an attorney, practicing in the Sacramento, California area. During my 40+ years in Sacramento, I started writing children's books, and took it up a bit more aggressively after adopting my son from Russia. He liked my stories, and we read so many books, I sometimes needed to fill in with new ones of my own. I look forward to the day when I can call writing my full-time career.
I am currently working on a fiction novel about leprechauns aimed at middle school readers. Slow going, since I have to work for a living.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Leprechaun Stew. Trouble is brewing in County Courtney for all of the leprechaun clans, and they are all wondering who will be next on the menu.

This will be a full-length novel for middle school ages and up. Hopefully, it will be completed in the fall of 2011 and available by Christmas.
