I was born in Berkeley, California on Hallowe’en night, 1958. My family moved to Toronto, Ontario in 1965, then my first husband and I moved to Victoria, British Columbia in 1989. I have three grown children. I remarried in 2012.
Michael and I live in a house in Victoria with our cat, Joy, and our golden doodle, Marvin. I am an introvert, drawing my energy from time alone in repose or creation. I love to write and read, to sew and create. I make quilts and purses and pillowcases–anything that pleases me, really. I write poems and stories (some featured in this blog), and recently a novel. Sometimes I draw and doodle, make comics and mandalas.
I work as a tutor and freelance editor.
