I have lived in Southern California all of my life and grew up in a large family. I had the auspicious luck of being the youngest member of that family. My parents divorced when I was young and that was during a time when divorce was not the 'in' thing to do, so we were the only kids in school with divorced parents. I became an observer, or an outsider, looking in. It was not an envious position to be in as a child, but made great memories for later stories.
I am a true believer in Karma and that all things happen for a reason. I write stories about real people with real lives, because after all fiction is always based upon reality. The topics in my novels are issues that need to be discussed and if a novel will bring it out into the open, then so be it. I hope that one person can find solace in a story.
