About Me:
A love triangle of extremes has proven to be a solid base for my writing. From my roots in Alaska I receive strength, solitude, centeredness and respect for the awful power of nature. Numerous adventure articles including my most recent Raven Brings the Sun about my float down the Tatshenshini River take place in my homeland. While living in Hawaii I found nurturing, a spiritual awakening, sensuality, peace and my heroine for my historical fiction, Wai-naniA Voice from Old Hawaii. In proud California I obtained a degree in English Literature from Northridge University and a doctorate in urban savvy. I continue to enjoy opportunities here for intellectual stimulation, exciting contacts and friends. It makes a great base for exploits that I share in my travel collection Lost Angel Walkabout-One Traveler's I'm excited to be chosen to be the Outdoor Travel Examiner for Join me on Great Outdoor Days in Los Angeles soon!
