I am a California native, U.C. Berkeley grad, and family matriarch with a high-tech marcom career in my past and a career as a novelist in my future. I call home the Sierra foothills near Yosemite and the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. When I’m not writing and traveling, I volunteer at the food closet and in our elementary school reading program, sing in the church choir, and serve on the board of our senior center.
