Hello! I grew up in South Dakota, but have spent most of my life in Arizona. The Verde Valley has become a way of life for me: the seasons, the birds, and the wildflowers are carved indelibly in my psyche.
When not writing I read voraciously, garden sporadically, and drink lots of coffee. I find ice cream and chocolate irresistible! Occasionally I wonder why we act as we do, why it is so hard to laugh at ourselves, and what would drive the ordinary person to murder and mayhem.
I currently divide my time between Arizona and Michigan, sharing my writing life with family and two wacko cats.
