I was born in Michigan and raised everywhere from Michigan to Hawaii to up and down the California coast (several times). Currently, my home is the Southern California desert with my husband, dog and three cats.
Story telling has always been a passion and as a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America, it was only natural that my first book be titled The Emerald Sorceress. In fact, so far, all of my stories have a "jewel" theme running through them. (Hmmmm, I wonder where that came from?) Of course jewelry plays a major part in my life and when I'm not writing, I can usually be found in my studio designing beautiful new pieces for my "Joie Amour" and "Moon Hawk Creations" jewelry lines.
The Emerald Sorceress is the first book in a series about the magical land of Medora and how a modern girl from Santa Monica copes with being transported to an alternate universe where she learns she is a powerful sorceress. Now, if only she knew how to use these powers . . .
I am currently at work on the next two books in the Medoran series and a light -hearted steampunk adventure.
