I live in Bethesda, MD with my husband, Kevin. Our two children have graduated from college and live in Madison, WI and San Francisco, CA. I write and illustrate picture books and have a new one just out titled: The Eye of the Whale - A Rescue Story, about a whale rescue which took place off the coast of San Francisco in 2005. I will be attending several book signing events in San Francisco in August. I also am a freelance illustrator and paint with oils. I enjoy cooking for friends and love going out to restaurants. Thai is a favorite, but I like everything! I enjoy seeing art in galleries and museums. I like to watch movies too. A book that I recently enjoyed is Dead End in Norvelt, by Jack Gantos.
I am a very considerate guest and like to leave a room in just as good if not better shape than as I found it. I enjoy meeting and talking with new people. Some of my favorite travel destinations have been the southwest coast of Ireland, Paris, the Oregon coast and San Francisco - can't wait!
