Born in Illinois, raised in San Diego, CA and Charleston, SC, my childhood was spent bouncing around military bases. I obtained a degree in biology from UC Santa Cruz and a medical degree from Michigan State. Presently living in Northern California, I am a Pediatrician with 25 years in medicine. Concerning writing, I contributed to a research paper during a college internship. I am pursuing my passion, and hope for a long productive career as an author.
