Born in Santa Monica, California, I now reside and write in the San Francisco East Bay Area, where I am active in the Mount Diablo Branch of the historic California Writers Club, founded in 1909. I also serve as a lay minister in a Roman Catholic parish, coordinating adult faith formation programs, moderating bereavement and lector ministries, and offering private spiritual direction.

If you enjoyed reading The Saint of Florenville, I hope you will consider reading my other novels and nonfiction work.

I am available to book clubs (think Skype) and for library and bookstore events.
I am also open to providing copies of my book to charitable organizations at a discount for resale. I’ll even consider signing books in person and donating a portion of the proceeds to your charity or church.
