Iím a Virgo-compromised female, very disciplined and have a strict regimen that I adhere to: I write four hours a day, play golf four hours a day, quilt for a couple hours, and watch Seinfeld reruns; these tasks are accomplished whenever the

Background Information



I have traveled the world writing about my experiences in foreign countries such as Iran (very foreign), Thailand (very happy), as well as non-foreign places like New Orleans (very kinky), Orange County, CA. (very last week), and Lake Chelan, Washington (very old-world-lovely). I am married, have had four children who gave me nine grandchildren--a compensation I like to think for growing old. I spend my writer’s life between Eastern Washington’s Beautiful Lake Chelan and Southern California’s balmy Palm Desert.

Birth Place
Glendale, CA USA

Iíve amassed numerous awards for my writing and poetry, among them the prestigious Southern California Writerís Conference First Place Award for ďBest NonfictionĒ for A Broad Abroad, as well as First Place in their inaugural Poetry Award. I am a prize-winning author, snagging first and second place prizes in literary contests. I attended Cerritos College Creative Writing Program, and College of the Desert Journalism and Magazine Writing programs, plus I have a clothes hamper full of writing accolades, certificates, degrees and rejection slips.My first book, A Broad Abroad in Thailand won First Place in National Indy Excellence Awards, as well as Silver in Forword's Book of the Year Contest.

Additional Information

My articles have appeared in the Palm Desert Sun, the Seattle Post Intelligencer and as a guest columnist for the Lake Chelan Mirror in Washington State. Excerpts from Abroad have been published in several Expat E-Zines, The University of Texas Literary Magazine,RiverSedge. I am now fast at work on my next memoir: A Broad Abroad in Iran: One Strappy-Sandled Foot Ahead of the Mullahs: An Expat's Misadventures in Iran before and during the Revolution.
