Born and grew up in La Jolla, California, did some social column reporting during high school and started writing fiction. Majored in anthropology and spent most of my post-college years teaching, including courses on mythology and folklore. I continued writing fiction on the side, which resulted in the publication of my novel, The Marriage Season, set in India. Have always been interested in environmental issues and turned to writing screenplays with environmental themes in the genre of cli-fi (climate fiction) -- 4 completed contest winners and several more cooking.
