Hello. I was born in South Korea where my parents were teaching missionaries shortly after the Korean War. I grew up in Vancouver, Canada. My husband Ross and I raised two sons. Over the years, I've been a home care aide, legal secretary, political speech writer, office manager, and vocational instructor. Mainly I worked in non-profit administration until suddenly deciding (in my late 50’s) to get an ESL teaching certificate. My husband and I now divide our time between China (where I teach) and the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.
I have authored several lengthy non-fiction pieces about notable American crimes, such as: the murder of Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the Lindbergh kidnapping, the 1920 Wall Street bombing, the satanic ritual moral panic of the 90's, and the Rubin Hurricane Carter case. My crime articles can be found online at www.crimemagazine.com. Last spring, after a long silence, my Muse showed up and started writing "A Contrary Wind" in my head.
