Well, since you've come this far....
       ...the least I can do is tell you a little bit about myself. I am a writer. I think I've always been a writer. It's woven into my fabric in some inescapable manner so that it defines everything I think or do. I'm also a wife, a mother, a VERY NEW grandmother, a fairly decent photographer and a pretty good cook...over the course of my fifty-plus years I've been a student, a florist, a bookkeeper, a newspaper reporter, a cartoonist, a hostess in a winery tasting room (now THAT'S the place to find stories!) and a teacher~~but first and foremost, I am a writer...though I must admit, Gramma is a close second!
       Now that we've got that established, and if you're at all interested, check out my interview with Scribes World. The interview was a unique experience ~~ the first time I ever sat down and actually defined why and how I write.
       I have a second interview, this one at MyShelf.com, with Suzie Housley, MyShelf reviewer and columnist. Once again, the questions help me find answers to my own questions as to why I continue in this serendipitious business!
       A third one has also gone up at ARomanceReview.com. Boy, do I love to talk about myself!
       My husband and I live in the northern California wine country. Our son and daughter are grown and on their own~~thanks to our daughter and son-in-law we're now grandparents of the world's most perfect grandson~~but we once made the foolish mistake of saying, out loud, how much we enjoyed our freedom. That's about the time Rufus tumbled into our lives, a furry little castaway who, in a very short time, has achieved complete dominion over our household.
       He's a fairly benign despot, but Doug and I have acknowledged we no longer live in a democracy.
       I'm no longer doing as much cycling photography as I once was and the webpage of cycling photos is currently innactive. Writing consumes me now, something I always hoped for. It was time to get my creative priorities in order.
       Thanks so much for stopping by. Please write to me...I'd love to hear from you.
