Our first novel: Pictures of Hollis Woods
I started teaching about fifteen years ago, in Los Angeles, just before moving to the Bay Area. I am very passionate about writing and I like working with students. Before teaching, I spent nearly twenty years working for an airline, traveling and discovering the world. These days, when I'm not teaching, I like having fun with my husband and my 6 year old daughter. This summer we enjoyed camping, hanging out at Santa Cruz beach and exploring the redwoods of nearby state parks, splashing around in the pool and visiting family in Sacramento. A few of my favorite things are jewelry making, gardening, camping, reading, writing, traveling and being as close to nature as possible. I also like creating wonderful meals for friends and family.
We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
It always seems impossible until it's done.
A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.
Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.
