About Me

I decided to become a writer when I discovered around 10 years of age I could make people laugh or cry with my homemade greeting cards. I was an English major in college, which proved to impress no one in the real world. Immediately after college, I relocated to San Francisco from Ohio. I worked as a newspaper reporter for a small weekly in the San Francisco Bay Area for a couple of years, filled in the income blanks over the next few years working as a street artist, an imported perfume specialist, and lots of bartender and waitress jobs. I then successfully owned and operated a brick-and-mortar resume/business writing service for over 20 years. Desperate for a change, I closed the business and have been freelancing ever since.


Cooking, baking and learning new techniques and recipes on the Food Network are my favorite pastimes – except during the NFL season. Every game and team are important as I compete in football pools with friends and strangers, often times quite successfully. Netflix and Amazon Prime keep me entertained in the off-season, and home brunch and dinner parties keep me connected and informed as we all discuss our very diverse views of life, love, politics and society.
