San Francisco
May 2009

Twenty-plus years writing in corporate communications, some published poetry, short-story firsts, went on to novels about ten years ago. My first published historical novel, J-The Woman Who Wrote the Bible, from O-Books in the UK, came out in July 2010. Second historical about 19th-century portrait painter John Singer Sargent is being reviewed by publishers now. Married, no kids, live in San Francisco, currently employed only with writing.
