I was born and raised in Arizona. Outside of Arizona, my travels had only gone as far as California, Nevada, and New Mexico until I married a man doing a stint in the Army. If the Army offered nothing else, we at least had the opportunity to see a good part of the world. And we found we liked moving around.
Our frequent moves continued into our civilian life. I’ve counted six states and two countries as home. We’ve finally landed in the central basin of Arizona with Lake Roosevelt just down the street. We split our time between here and the occasional stays in northern Arizona, still gypsies at heart.
I've been writing all of my life. Early on my writing consisted mostly of the captions on my artwork. I was certain my destiny was to be an artist. In high school, my writing took on new meaning with the psychedelic age, and writing became an art in itself with loopy scrolls and color. It wasn't until after college that I found more satisfaction filling a blank page with words than an empty canvas with color. I left my paints behind.
I’ve found all good stories involve complicated human relationships. Character driven novels are rich with love, hate, suspense, and mystery. I’ve also learned, love alone doesn’t make the world go `round, but a good suspense plot with maybe a little murder thrown in sure gives it a kick start. And in each story, regardless of a person’s age, a new discovery is right around every corner.
At home or wherever we roam, I spend most of my time writing stories of discovery and love entangled with suspense.
