About the Author

In high school and college, I loved creative writing and did a fair amount of it,. But once I hit law school, my world became one of nonfiction. Then the urge became overwhelming, and I jumped in. It was always obvious to me that my genre would be mystery/thriller, but I surprised myself by dabbling in speculative fiction as well.


Then I came across the amazing story of the Stone of Destiny (the ancient throne of Scottish kings). This artifact is chock full of surprises. I'm quite convinced that the one on display at the Castle of Edinburgh is a substitute and the original is hidden elsewhere. It's been a total blast spinning a yarn about that. It's nearing completion (I've said that before); will keep you posted.


Another passion of mine is yoga. Figure this one out: I studied Hatha yoga for about 18 years, got my initial certification in Vinyasa, am 3/4 of the way through Kripalu 500-hr training and practice Anusura yoga when I go to a class. I would describe my classes as contemplative and stretchy. Obviously, I am not an adherent of singular ways of doing things.


As for other things I'm into, I'm a live wire who has trouble sitting in front of my computer terribly long before getting up to go DO something. I'm passionate about the outdoors and enjoy hiking, camping, rock climbing, ocean sailing, scuba diving, back packing and snow skiing. I was studying African drumming until Covid hit. I guess you could say I like jumping into things.
