Background Information

I grew up in Bellevue, Washington, where I attended an all girls Catholic school. Given the choice to attend a public or private high school , I chose public school, whereupon her parents replied “wrong choice.” It was the smartest decision I never made since at the time, my fondest desire was to live in a commune. After graduating, I attended Washington State University, earning a B.A. in Speech and a Graduate Degree in Audiology—fields that proved to be particularly useless in my future endeavors as a humor writer.

I won ‘Honorary Mention’ for a story in the ‘Humor Press’ contest. The story was a thinly disguised portrayal of my mother in law and her ‘depression era’ saving habits.
