The creative bug infected me in the womb from my mom’s voice in a California rock band. Painting in my mom’s art studio, studying Graham-style modern dance, and learning the pedal harp from a chain-smoking, witty, nerd with a wimpy cat formed my childhood. It’s no surprise my Bachelor’s degree is in Visual and Performing Arts. As a harpist, I performed for unconventional events. I started writing as a freelancer covering live theatre. I am the author of the MerSea series about a conservationist mermaid.

Inspiration comes from everywhere. The vegan lifestyle, theatre, music, books, authors, visual arts, museums, and the ocean in California inspire my blog.
