I've had a successful career as an engineer, technical salesperson, and water quality expert. I have a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, a master’s in chemical engineering, and a second master’s in environmental management. I've also published several technical papers and numerous travel stories before devoting my writing to my memoir.
I was born in Nova Scotia, Canada. When I was three, my family moved to Alamogordo, New Mexico.
I am interested in travel, gardening, and bike commuting. I am intrigued by cultural anthropology and writes short humorous stories about my worldwide travels.
For the last twenty years, my home base has been Santa Barbara, California, where I live with my husband of 40 years and my two dogs.
