WELCOME

WELCOME

Thank you visiting my website.

I sometimes feel I have led several lives, but throughout the years, my passion for reading and writing has never faltered. I’ll write anything but my books usually turn out to be mystery, thriller, suspense or noir. Or a combination of two or more. Because that’s what I love to read.

I’ve held a variety of occupations, including waitress, car saleswoman, department store clerk, cashier for a pet store, and  almost five years as a go-go dancer in the late sixties in Philadelphia. For more than twenty years I worked for lawyers and oil and gas executives.

Born in North Dakota and raised in Los Angeles and San Francisco, I settled in Houston after living in parts of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Florida. I am happily unmarried after six attempts with men who made fascinating characters to write about, but didn’t succeed as husband material. I presently live with my grown son, our dog Sherlock, twelve rescued cats, and within hours of my two daughters.

I studied writing fiction and screenplays at UCLA, USC, Rice University, and Beyond Baroque in Venice, California. After taking a directing class in Houston, I co-wrote, directed, and acted in a one-act play. I optioned three screenplays to a local production company and co-wrote a script for the 48 Hour Film Project. I’m a member of MWA, Sisters-In-Crime, The International Thriller Writers, and The Final Twist Writers and have a presence on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Good Reads, and Amazon Author Central.

Enjoy my books and feel free to contact me about the books or blog posts.
