Welcome to my fledgling website. Itís just starting out, but it will grow.
I am a foodie and fanatic about good chocolate, a physical therapist, and a private pilot. I lived on a boat for 17 years, and in my dreams, Iím a famous watercolor artist, a pianist of renown, and a globe trotting yogini.
Iíll be posting tips on books you might enjoy reading, introductions to other authors, recipes, boating bits, and perhaps some tales of flying.
I hope you will find my website interesting and occasionally funny or thought provoking. But donít stay here too long. Go find a book and curl up by the fire for a good long read.
What Iím writing:
I write the monthly galley column for Pacific Yachting magazine.
Iím working on (i.e., am struggling with) Murder Unsuspected, a cozy mystery that takes place in Provence.
Iím marketing my first cozy, Murder Unrehearsed, set in Washington State at a high mountain lake resort.
On the back burner simmers a childrenís book about Mr. Moose and Mr. Bear, stuffed animals who lived aboard with me and got into trouble whenever I left them alone.

I have published a one-act play and written medical information for patients.
I hold two certificates in fiction from the University of Washington.
I am a member of Pacific Northwest Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and Authors Guild.
