Thank you for visiting my website. Here you’ll have the opportunity to explore my world: writer, photographer, naturalist and also grandmother! I’ll share everything from how I get my ideas to tips on research to the ins and outs of revision. You’ll see photos for magazine articles or those that serve as a source of inspiration. Living in the desert with its cacti, critters, and crazy monsoon weather is filled with adventures that I hope you’ll enjoy. Finally, there will be practical ways to raise a reader perhaps your own child, student, or grandchild. Come often to learn and laugh!
