I live in Northern California with a wildly supportive husband, three stunningly smart children, and red rottweiler named Paco.

I've been dabbling in writing for 25 years, but finally buckled down and got serious about the craft 4 years ago. My first novel, "Tenderfoot" is the result of my recent efforts, and will be published in the Spring of 2016.

Here on wattpad, I'm publishing novellas about the main characters from my novel, "Tenderfoot&quot. The stories in these novellas are meant to exist separately from the novel. You don't have to read "Tenderfoot" to enjoy or understand the novellas!

When I'm not plunking away on my ancient laptop writing stories, you'll most likely find me with my nose in a book, or talking too loudly with a friend. I'm passionate about my morning coffee, and black and white movies. My current dream vacation includes an ice hotel, the aurora borealis, and some really, really warm clothes.

Thanks for stopping by and trying my work on for size! If you like my novellas, try "Tenderfoot" currently available on Amazon. Make sure to comment, vote, and/or follow me if you find my stories fit you.
