I travel a lot for my work, which is a mix of developing, editing and translating books. Grew up in Monterey County, California, then lived 18 years in New York (working as a literary agent), and finally took off for Brazil. I've lived in different regions of the country since 2002.
As guests go, I'm an easy keeper--all I need is a place to lie down, an outlet for my laptop, and internet access. Kids and dogs generally find me acceptable. Wherever I go, I tend to be out all day, but love to stay in and read in the evenings. I don't stay up late. And I don't make much noise.
