I'm a native of the San Francisco Bay Area and have lived in California all my life. A few years ago I moved to the Klamath National Forest. I'm a mother of five (the youngest is 19) and have worked as a preschool teacher, county welfare eligibility worker, paralegal, web designer, news reporter/editor, and cook. I'm a family-rights activist, a journaler, and a former home school parent.
I've been writing for about 40 years. Since 2001 I've been writing novels for children, teens, and young women.
