Almost old enough to retire, lesbian grandmother, UU lay preacher, publisher, author, circus aficionado, spelling cop, and grammar snob.

Background Information

My professional life has included computer systems analyst, professor, child welfare worker, journalist, and, for a brief but memorable time, call center minion. Now I'm the co-founder of Puddletown Publishing Group, an e-book publisher based in Portland, OR.

I came to the e-book through necessity. As I've aged, my eyesight has betrayed me. I went from reading 200 to 300 books a year to reading three. It's hard to read if you have to take off your glasses, cover one eye, squint with the other, and hold the book three inches from your face. My Nook Color saved my reading life. I'm now back up to two or three books a week, not counting the ones I read for work.

That said, I miss "real" books. I love the feel, smell, and swishy sound of turning pages. Puddletown is committed to finding ways to help bookstores, especially indies, stay in business.  If you have ideas, send them my way.

My personal life revolves around my partner of 20 years, our farmette on Beavercreek, our pound puppy dog, three cats, and assorted near-dead rodents that find their way inside because I love having the doors open. We have three grown daughters. Two are bank managers and have given us a total of four grandkids. One is a circus performer, too busy hanging upside down or turning herself inside out to be bothered with spawning.

I'm way too educated, in way too many fields. Two bachelors, one in Computer Science, one in Education. Two masters, one in Spiritual Traditions and Ethics, one in Publishing. I also found time to go to Episcopal seminary, before I became a Unitarian Universalist.

Just to make sure I never retire, we just built a new house in the country with a 30 year mortgage.

Birth Place
Portland, OR USA

Numerous awards for journalism, poetry, writing.

Additional Information

My first book, Blind Leading the Blind, was just released. It's a lesbian mystery. If you want to know more, read it. It's good!

I write about everything and anything related to life, the universe, travel, fiber arts, and my dog. I also write about books. Writing them and reading them.

My business partner makes me restrict writing about publishing, editing, and everything else that goes into making a book to this blog. If it's not at Wiggle Room, it's probably here.
