I have worked in the wine industry for 20 years, the most recent eight in education with the Society of Wine Educators and the French Wine Society. In these roles, I have authored and/or edited wine study manuals and developed or expanded certification programs for the wine trade.
In my free-time, I write fiction...naturally, with a glass of wine at the elbow.
I am a Maryland Master Gardener and have put that training into practice in my sizable vegetable garden. To assist me, I have recruited the services of a very helpful staff: two Chinese geese, two mini-Rex rabbits and 2,000 red wigglers (worms)…all of which are "master composters". An adopted feral cat guards the perimeters and keeps the groundhogs at bay.
My debut paranormal romance, "Touching the Moon" was published by Aakenbaaken & Kent (NY) in November, 2012.
