While I live in the Pacific Northwest right now, it is the old Commonwealth to which my soul and most (but not all) of my writings truly belong... which makes sense once I tell you that I was born in Portsmouth, England and dually raised in Brooklyn and Australia...
I graduated from Sacramento State in 1990. I went back to begin my MA in the writing program there, but dropped out to concentrate on writing.
