I’m a writer of Slavic/Hispanic descent and love putting my own spin on fairy tales and myths from those cultures.

My non-fiction work has appeared in regional and national publications. In addition to my novels and stories, I’m researching ideas for children’s books about California. As a native of this wonderful state, I particularly want to celebrate the women who’ve helped it thrive.

I’ve taught inner-city children, reported for local papers, and helped maintain parks. I enjoy books, movies, games—my daily brain food is The New York Times’ crossword puzzle—and relaxing with my partner in the serenity of our garden, a Certified Wildlife Habitat.

I love accordions and own a vintage Delarosa from Italy, where I once spent a frigid December in an unheated garret. I may have been cold, but Christmas in Rome was an absolute delight!
