My first manuscript, Still Kicking But Not High is set in the San Joaquin Valley of California where I was born and raised. I relocated to the Bay Area to attend San Francisco State University (BA English) and I have never looked back.
I co-authored a biography of my grandmother, A Little Piece of Leather Well Put Together and recently had a poem published in Spectrum 18. My essay on racism aired on Perspectives on KQED public radio. I am currently writing my second novel Some Greens for my Blues set in post-WWII Oakland, California.
I am a member of the California Writers Club, and an active participant in a critique group of accomplished and published Bay Area writers. I am an educator, literacy coach and avid mystery reader, I spend my free time writing, exploring Bay Area trails alone and with my GirlTrek sisters, attending blues and jazz concerts, and traveling abroad as frequently as possible. .
