I was born in Steinbeck's Salinas Valley, the setting for FLYING BLIND, A CROPDUSTER'S STORY, my novel released November 2019 by Sand Hill Review Press.
My self-published novel, A PRIMROSE IN NOVEMBER, a family saga, is set in England and France.
My upmarket women's fiction, WHEN ALICE PLAYED THE LOTTERY, takes place in the Silicon Valley where I currently live with my husband and two cats while rewriting two additional novels, SHEDDING CATS and WILD DANCING.
I have also worked as a technical writer, a journalist, and a newspaper columnist with reprints in publications such as Reader's Digest.
FLYING BLIND, A Cropduster's Story
A cropduster shouldn't teach a priest to fly. At least not Tony. He shouldn't be having an affair with his boss' wife either.
Tony flees Texas at the point of a shotgun and finds himself unemployed. As a flight instructor, he demonstrates flying spray runs to his worst student, Father Roberto. Imagine the Great Waldo Pepper teaching Mother Theresa to fly in Steinbeck's Salinas Valley in 1972.
An ace in the air, but a mess on the ground, Tony needs to tame his inner demons. Can he stay alive long enough to do that? Is flying fast and low really like making love to a beautiful woman?
