I have been writing professionally for more than 35 years. I published newspaper and magazine articles in the days when such things still involved ink on paper, wrote a database how-to book when such things were popular, and now offer writing and editing services as a consultant.
After joining the California Writers Club in 2011, I was inspired to pursue a non-traditional publishing path for my novel Dance of Souls, which is available for Amazon’s Kindle and in paperback. My short stories “Mistress Mine” and “Hot” and several poems have appeared in two Fault Zone anthologies.
In 2012, I won the CWC’s “Most Promising Writer of the Year” award for the short story “The Boy in the Window,” which also won second place in the short story category at the San Mateo County Fair’s Literary Arts competition. In 2013 I served as editor of the Fault Zone anthology, Fault Zone: Shift; in 2014 I edited Fault Zone: Diverge.
In June 2016, I was elected to serve as vice president of the SF-Peninsula Branch of the California Writers Club, a position that involves selecting speakers for our monthly meetings. Please contact me if you are interested in presenting.
I live in northern California with my husband, two children, and two cats. I’m at work on another novel and a collection of short stories.
