A love triangle of extremes has proven to be a solid base for my writing. From my roots in Alaska I receive strength, centeredness and respect for the awful power of nature. Numerous adventure articles, essays on my website are set in my homeland. In Hawaii I found a spiritual awakening, sensuality, peace and my heroine for my historical novel, Wai-nani--A Voice from Old Hawaii. In proud California I obtained a degree in English Literature from Northridge University and a doctorate in urban savvy. I continue to enjoy opportunities here for intellectual stimulation, exciting contacts and friends. My armchair travel collection, Lost Angel Walkabout-One Traveler's Tales, is filled with chills, spills, and giggles takes you to Alaska, Costa Rica, New Zealand and the wild west of North America!
In my latest novel Cowgirl Jumped Over the Moon Grand Prix jumper Gemcie McCauley takes a tumble on Marshal, her Irish Hunter, that turns her world upside down. She heads for the high Sierras to find her balance and meets Brady, a solitary cowboy, who gives her the courage to get back into the saddle and beat the odds. She returns to reclaim Marshal and fly high with him once more.
