Profile Information

I was born & grew up in the Albany, NY area where I attended SUNY at Albany. I moved to San Jose, CA where I met my current husband and had my oldest two children. We later moved to San Diego County where my 3rd child was born, and no longer working outside the home I started writing-- something I had dabbled in before.

But it wasn't until we moved to Simi Valley, CA that I became serious about writing, went regularly to poetry readings, took several classes for writing poetry, belonged to a group where we critiqued each other's work, and worked on Verve, a small press magazine.

During that time I had a number of poems published in various small press magazines, and a short story published in the Children's section of a newspaper.

Our last move brought us to a small town in Northern California, where I have been part of a poetry group and done some readings.

During most of my years in California I have been a practicing Nichiren Buddhist, and spend a fair amount of time here in Humboldt County as a leader in the local (SGI-USA) organization.
