I'm a writer, author, workshop facilitator, mother, wife, project manager. I love people, nature, new experiences, trivia, and all things creative. I prefer tea to coffee, walking to running, sunrises to sunsets, quiet to noisy, light filled rooms to cozy caves, rising early to sleeping in, quiet over loud, exploring to shopping. I love to travel and look for farmers markets, interesting walks, great art, cultural exchange, beauty in all forms, and variety of experience when I do. In late 2011 I moved to Florida after decades living in the mountains (Asheville and Santa Fe). I now watch multitudes of sea birds and the shifting tides on Tampa Bay. Track the color of the sky with the sun. Asheville is still a regular destination for friends, fav restaurants, literary connections and pursuits. And every year I enjoy an extended stay in Santa Fe for sky, color, artistic exploration, friends, and soul rejuvenation.
