voice of rhyme and meter.  She writes with
grit and honesty and a joyful hope that touches
everyone who reads her work. In a style that is
simplistic but forthright, she evokes laughter

a life situation through a new lens. She has
also had a monthly column in a Bay Area
publication for ten years.

husband, Bob. They have three grown sons,
