My background in theatre, television, film, and improvisation launched me into the unlimited arena of fiction writing. It was while performing in the improvisation troupe, Capers, that I began to write characters for myself. Writing gives me the freedom to be any character I want to be regardless of gender, race, Earthling, or other.
My father was in the Air Force, so we moved often. My mother taught English and French literature and later became an editor for the engineering department at Hughes Aircraft. I was raised with a love of literature. Because we moved frequently, books became close friends.
