I graduated from the University of the Pacific with a B.A. in English and a Minor in Communication Arts. I started teaching elementary school, and realized a Masters would put me higher on the pay scale, so I earned by Masters in Education from the University of Nevada, Reno. For twenty-five years I taught school, ranging from elementary to college level English. I created the first novel writing course at Truckee Meadows Community College and taught The Artist Way in Community Education. I was the Vice-President of the Romance Writers of Northern Nevada before it disbanded in 2002. My published works include The Jeweled Path, Divine Diva, Comstock Rose, and The Way. I am a Reiki Master Teacher who has pursued the Diva trail for over twenty years and I urge everyone to empower their life by accessing their own power to create the life they deserve at
After my youngest left for college, in order to avoid the empty nest blues, I resigned from teaching and went into business with my husband. We own and operate Sierra RV Super Center, employing over thirty people. Our dealership offers sales, service, parts, and rentals. I create my own ads; voice my own commercials, and offer tips and information on the RV lifestyle. We are parents of two grown children and have two fabulous grandchildren—the reason we didn't kill the teenagers!
Reading, writing, pilates, yoga, hiking, playing with my grandchildren.
