Before I got my start as an author, I was a geologist and field fashion icon. (Believe it or not, everyone wore those shorts then. The glasses? Not so common.)

The guy in the hat is my husband-to-be. He traveled all over Baja with me dressed that way and married me anyway. That’s a Mexican beer in his hand. Which could have affected his judgement.

I live in San Diego now, with my husband and our very spoiled dogs. We can see Mexico out our dining room window.


I was born in Newport Beach and have lived in southern California all my life. I graduated from Santa Barbara High School, and received a B.S. degree in Geological Sciences and an M.A. degree in English from San Diego State University.
