I started writing in seventh grade at St. Mary’s Cathedral School under the tutelage of Sister Delores Marie who told me I had talent. I believed her. I started traveling at age 21. Now I combine traveling and writing. I’m completing my fourth mystery novel set in South Africa. One of my novels, Murder in a Teacup, placed second in the California Writers Club Jack London novel contest. I’m a member of Mystery Writers of America and sit on the central board of the California Writers Club. Visit my web site.
