I have been writing as long as I can remember. It is just in my blood. It was a major focus in high school, which I took with me to the San Francisco Art Institute where I majored in creative writing. I then worked for, and at one point owned, an advertising agency utilizing my talents commercially. I stepped away from writing short stories and novels for a period of time while raising a family, but could never get away from it for long. While in Idaho, I joined the Magnificent Seven writing group at the Log Cabin Literary Center and worked with those wonderful writers for a few years honing my talents with their insight. I have had minor success in publishing, but Hoaxes is my first endeavour into electronic publishing and I am excited to have this resource to share my work. I currently live in Gresham, Oregon, but spend as much time as I can at my cabin in Pacific City where I find a wealth of inspiration. I am currently working on my next novel- River of Dreams.
