Born and raised along California's breathtaking Central Coast, I'm often compelled to write about those experiences that deeply inspire me and they usually have something to do with travel and the great outdoors. I have a true passion for world cultures, wildlife and wild places, the ocean and unexpected hidden treasures found along the way. Throughout my 25+ years of being published, I've written about everything from travels to Morocco, Spain and the Caribbean to intriguing destinations much closer to home.  I recently published my second book based on my family's extensive history on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Next up is a historical perspective as the fourth generation of a ranching family from the Santa Barbara / Goleta Valley area.
