Author Biography

I was born in Redwood City, California to a navy sailor and a housewife. My creativity began to emerge while writing poems. After high school graduation, I continued to write in the form of metaphorical editorials. I entered into the high tech industry and took business writing courses at San Jose State to enhance my professional skills. Writing letters of recommendation, executive correspondence and presentations became my daily tasks for over a decade. While taking a sabbatical in late 2006, I accepted a contest challenge to write a novel in 30 days. In 2008 Children’s Chapter Book, Sir Licksalot & The Maverick Fools, was published followed by Sir Licksalot & The Island Fools in 2012. The latest book in the Sir Licksalot Series, Sir Licksalot & The Arctic Fools will be released in late 2013.

Creative writing is a passion I enjoy immensely. I am actively involved in youth organizations and spend my family time with my son and our miniature dachshund. We currently reside in the land of opportunity, the Silicon Valley.
