I live on a ten acre ranch in Longmont Colorado with my husband Gary, my dog Remy, my three Arabian horses and numerous cats. I'm from Scotland originally. I did a lot of backpacking around the world, in Europe, Asia but mostly in South and Central America before I settled down in this area. I am a published novelist, a total book fanatic, an avid horsewoman, enjoy the outdoors, would like to take up oil painting again if I ever have the time, have a very wide range of interests including every kind of alternative healing and energy work. I speak French (though have forgotten much) and Spanish. I love meeting new people and socializing with friends from all over the world.
