Living in the here & now, but always moving forward to the next adventure!


Background Information

The closer I get to being a septuagenarian (but a septuagenarian in denial), the more difficult it becomes to distill major influences down to a few paragraphs. However, some synchronicity and new discoveries make the job a bit easier.

In researching my current and next book, I found reams of stuff my parents and sister wrote many years ago, which gave me new insights into who I am. I knew I had inherited some very good genes--the nature part of the equation. What my discoveries and research told me is that I came from people on both sides with whom I share more than good health and physical characteristics.

My sister wrote that my father (who died before I was fourteen-months old) was a voracious reader, as were my mother, my sister, and dad’s somewhat scandalous mother before him. Both of my parents were storytellers and unpublished writers. My paternal grandfather was an inventor and a genius with anything mechanical or electrical. And there are people in my past who were driven by adventure, wanderlust, and somewhat quirky personalities. I proudly add my name to that list. Tests in school many years ago determined that my two strongest aptitudes are mechanical and literary.

I’ve worked for a living most of my life, in a variety of jobs. Most recently, I was a training and e-learning designer and developer, software documentation writer, and classroom trainer. My mother was a trainer for the State of California Department of Employment. My training career began when I was fourteen and my ballet teacher turned over her adult beginner classes to me. I taught ballet, off and on, until I was thirty-five, and was very active in theater until I was fifty. I directed, acted, trained and coached actors, and worked on every aspect of production. In my day job, I was a geological technician.

The most important 'takeaways' from the performing arts: becoming a keen observer of people, and trying to figure out what makes them tick. The most important things from my day jobs: lots of knowledge, but better yet, lots of people to observe, and many stories to tell about them.

I thrive on challenges, am compulsively curious, and require objective and rational answers to my most pressing questions—a trait annoying to family members, several friends, and most employers. Or... my head is off in the clouds, contemplating the probably impossible. If you’re familiar with Myers-Briggs temperament profiles, you should recognize me as an ENTP, hard-wired (evidently) to need answers to even unanswerable questions.

I stopped obsessing about why my mother hated me (after reading her own writing), and finally understand and embrace who I am: a compulsive over-achieving, multi-tasking, equally right/left brained, almost fearless adventurer. I get bored easily, have an unquenchable thirst to learn more about everything I can stuff into my brain; believe that there’s always another great adventure in my future, and am highly motivated to keep moving toward it!

Oh, yes... and I love more than anything to pass on what I learn about life, or how those rock formations got that way, or how to apply stage makeup so the people in the back row of the theater can see that you have a face! So many stories to tell...

Additional Information

Having recently become a POD publisher, I've just proofread and resubmitted "Living on the Sunny Side, a Memoir." My second book is in the research stage. It will be a fact-based novel, written from my parents' 1942 notes, about my father's family, particularly about his scandalous and homicidal mother. This one is just too much fun to even research. I can't wait to start actually writing it.
