Boulder, Colorado is home to the most active people in the country. With over 300 sunny days a year, I enjoy exploring the outdoors while taking photographs and chronicling my wild life.
My background is in art and I was a professional illustrator, but I recently found my true passion in writing. Now I paint scenes with words.
My debut novel is the first of a series. It’s a speculative suspense about a mysterious secret buried deep in the bowels of an old estate in the South of France. I threw in a little romance and humor because France and I’m all about humor. The ghostly apparitions and premonitions in my story are based on some of my own experiences. I know!
Being diagnosed with breast cancer, sucked. I wrote The Boob Reports and faced cancer and double boobectomies with humor. Boobs are pretty funny, anyway. Don’t get me started about nipples. I can’t change the fact that I will always have breast cancer associated with my name, but am trying to change the way people think about it. It’s been over two years and I am healthy. YAY! I have a few more chapters (blog posts) to write. Someday, it will transform from “blog to book.” After writing 450 blog posts in the last four years, I have a few of books in store.
I collaborated on a screenplay called Jennifer’s Gift with Erik Wolter. We are currently “shopping it.” I wrote a funny magical realism and hope it will be ready in the fall. Imagine Robert Downey Jr. as a spoiled college professor who needs to lose something in order to grow up.
Currently, I am working on a new novel, a paranormal comedy. Think Betty White as the ghost.
Yep. I’m a busy girl polishing my work before releasing it into the wild while living a wild life. I’m the kind of writer who isn’t afraid to slash and burn, soaks up writing advice like a sponge, and takes criticism as a challenge. I’m all about challenges and improving my craft. Crafty is good!
