• I was born in North Hollywood and have lived most of my life in LA.  I began teaching at an alternative school, moved to an inner city high school and then a barrio junior high.  I spent my last twenty years teaching at the San Pedro High Marine Science Magnet. All the time I was raising a family and writing when I could find the time.  I now write full time and volunteer at a light house.  My YA novel Bones of a Saint will be published by Soho press March 16. 

    Although my profile currently shows me as a member since 2021, I have been a member off and on for over thirty years.  I appreciate all who have encouraged me along this adventure.
