Author & Writer
I love a great story! Whether it is bound between covers, screened in a theater, or offered by a lonely stranger over counter served coffee at a donut shop, story lets us express our personal truth as we understand it, and it helps us recognize and understand the truth of others. Story is a connection between between two people, a connection that lives on indefinitely.
For those willing to spend a little time experiencing the world through the eyes of my characters, or my own, I invite you to explore and enjoy below.
About the Author
I was raised in San Luis Obispo, California, a local several generations deep, surrounded by family, wineries, Spanish Missions, beaches, and railroad yard houses. I later moved to Los Angeles, working in law, surrounded by music and its industry, studying law, design, scene study and screenwriting. In 2006, I followed a Southern boy I met in our downtown office plaza back home to North Carolina and started life anew as a wife, mother, and writer, immersed in a world of midwives, doulas, babies, children, wine moms, and Southern culture.
Each part of my life, each with Shelties or a Collies in tow, has gifted me with plenty to write about. The most fascinating parts, in retrospect, have been the transition zones between these places, the spots where seismic culture shock and personal growth occurs.
