Native Texan, Baby Boomer, Writer, Muse, MOM
I live in Austin, Texas, a city that thrives on weirdness - a perfect place to nurture my wildly active imagination and where all my fabulous children and zany friends live.
Life is like a collection of crazy short stories, and I get a huge kick out of turning them all into fiction.
Short and Sweet Projects:
Published my stories in Woman's Weekly, a fine 109 year-old magazine in London and in Adelaide NY, a lovely magazine dedicated to short story writers and located in New York and Lisbon.
Adelaide Books just published my first book in November 2020!
Contributing writer for Beyond Arts & More Magazine - a publication dedicated to promoting and highlighting Texas artists and the businesses which support them. It's was a thrill to interview:
Monte Montgomery, guitarist extraordinaire
Jack Ables, owner of Saxon Pub
Luis Abreux - the fabulous Cuban artist, Sculptor
Walter Stewart, Sculptor and Lifesaver
ArtCrank, Cycling Art Posters
Jack Gilmore of Jack Allen's Kitchen and his son, Bryce of Barley Swine
Artist, George Hampton
Shady Grove and Unplugged at the Grove
I've also had the privilege of writing lyrics for these bands - Latin at Heart and Reel Sheboygan.
Collaborating with Evelyn M. Turner on her sequel, "Crawling out of the Darkness" as her second pair of eyes for envisioning the final shape of the novel was a feather in my cap! Pick up a copy at Amazon.
This is a rough video I did when I started my first book project years back. Goofy, I know. I have since then changed the book title, along with my writing style. Dance moves are original, so is the bandaid on my finger.
