In childhood, limited by polio, reading became one of my favorite scapes into adventure and history. When able to, I would go up to an attic above my grandparent's store where books were kept. There, by a small barred window under a light bulb strung from the ceiling, I lost myself in pages filled with mystery or damsels in distress who overcame their dilemmas; I also daydreamed of dancing.
After graduating from high school, I worked as a model and dancer. Then, during the time I was a stay-at-home mom, I took night college classes. My 30-year career in government started in customer service, then for ten years as a Public Relations Specialist and the last twenty as Research Analyst.
Since then, I freelanced as a columnist for Examiner.com and CBS Sacramento; was a Poetry Finalist in the San Francisco 2012 writers' conference; published The Sylph's Tale, a novella see reviews on Amazon and adapted it into a screenplay, see comments from the Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting. I am currently working on ELEMENTALS - The Series.
Other works in progress include a book of poetry, a second screenplay, several short stories, and the following novellas: Of Passion's Thorns, a tale of success inspired by obstacles and bigotry; Sweet Dreams My Love, the struggle of a family from addiction to recovery; Judy Malone, a gripping story about infidelity.
