I am a retired copyeditor, married to a software engineer who also writes fiction and plays a killer game of Scrabble. I write, too, also paint watercolors and enjoy digital photography. We love to rent apartments in Europe so we can savor the way life is lived in Barcelona, Berlin, Paris and Venice. We are transplanted East Coasters, having migrated west for school. We love the San Francisco Bay Area for many reasons, but also enjoy museum hopping in Manhattan.
