I’m a free-spirited baby boomer and young-at-heart author who loves to write stories about the challenges of not-so-young love. I wrote and illustrated my first short story at the age of eight, and have continued to write in some capacity for most of my life. My love of the written word continued throughout my varied career as a newspaper journalist and editor, public relations executive, freelance travel writer and owner/operator of two small businesses. A native of Texas, I have spent most of my adult life in Colorado, where I live with my husband, a standard poodle, and geriatric cat. I am a lifelong devotee of rock and soul music, contemporary art and pop culture.
