About

I graduated in Science Writing from Oregon State University in 1990.

My hobbies include Ballroom and Salsa dancing. I enjoy fast-walking the park which loops around Mission Bay in San Diego.

I love to travel to intriguing destinations. These form backdrops for the whodunit-suspense-thrillers I write for Amazon.

For the past four years, I've published six Suspense-Thrillers:
Diamond Death, Amethyst Death, One After Another, Golden Death, Crimson Death, and Emerald Death are available as Kindle e-books, paperbacks, and hard covers on Amazon.com. Diamond Death is also available as an Audio book:

I wrote food articles for the Oregonian, the Eugene Register Guard, and Camperways magazine and self-published a cookbook while living in Egypt. I also concocted a puzzle for Dell Pencil Puzzles and wrote business articles and business manuals for a bank.

I was thrilled to receive a certificate in Pastry from the Cordon Bleu School in Paris. *Member Author's Guild, Bryan Cohen's Authors and Writers Group, and San Diego Smooth Dancers.
