Meet the Author

I was born some time back in Illinois and spent my first 18 years in a small town downstate. After the usual college career, I got an MA in English Lit. at U.of I., and met my husband, a Korean War vet with a bad case of congenital itchy foot, there. While he finished his PhD in Engineering, I produced five kids and took various part-time jobs: everything from waitress to library asst. to clerk-typist.
We trailed the kids after us to Texas, Louisiana (New Orleans!), Queensland and the Northern Territory in Australia, and the Big Island of Hawaii. After that, with the kids all grown up and busily producing grandchildren, we moved to s. FL, where we lived on a 26-ft. sailboat for upwards of fifteen years. Now we live in an apartment (it’s bigger than the boat, and has a refrigerator!) in Gainesville, FL.
In addition to my addiction to writing, I’ve been: an English instructor, a high-school teacher, a word-processor operator in an Agronomy dept., a temp, an assistant to a bankruptcy trustee, dogsbody for a Mac-freak programmer and inventor manqué, and mailroom employee in a mailing service.
