I was born and raised in Charlotte, N.C. A few years after graduation I moved to Los Angeles. I raised my children here, worked and retired here in LA. I have been writing seems like all my life. Short stories just for fun or to enter a contest. In my early teens I wrote a lot of poems. I love to read. Everything from romance to suspense. My favorite is actions, where there is a hero that can kick butt and takes names all day long. This has been a great adventure and hope it is the first of many.
