Born and raised in California, I spent nine years in Tennessee at the turn of the century, learning to speak Southern, and eight months in the Arizona desert, learning I really don't like heat! Presently, I live with my husband of 38 years and two dachshunds on 10 shared acres near Lake Oroville, CA. I consider myself a "renaissance woman" with a wide variety of interests and enthusiasms, including gardening, reading, writing, baking, dogs, crafts and family (not necessarily in that order!). I taught myself to read at age four, from the back of cereal boxes at the breakfast table, and haven't stopped reading since. My favorite genres are cozy mysteries, historical fiction and non-fiction, and biography. I own my own writers services business, Time in a Bottle, providing an array of services for authors. I have two grown children, Rebecca and David (and two grandsons, Xavier and Alexander). Visit my blog.
