I'm an almost life long Southern Californian (minus 3 months) and have lived in vibrant and diverse Northeast L.A. for most of my adult life. I've returned to school to re-tool my education for a career change - and I'm having fun with that! My wonderful husband Josh and I will celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary this Spring. I make time to goof off with my friends, and figure out new and interesting ways to feed my allergic family members! I edit crime fiction, love movies, reading historical fiction, and traveling. Most of my recent travel is connected to my husband's growing career as a novelist, but my favorite places to go are remote and rugged areas of Scotland.
