I’ve  had the good fortune to have lived, traveled, and worked all over the world.  I use my experiences and adventures  in Japan, Nepal, Tibet, 

Lesotho, Germany, and Canada,  as a source of inspiration to write novels set in exotic locales and populated with memorable characters.  


In Japan, I taught English to businessmen, and in Tokyo worked on NHK television and radio. In Nepal, I was marketing manager for a resort in the Himalayas. In Lesotho, Africa, I was representative for a Canadian parastatal which brought out short term volunteers to assist with a multitude of wonderful projects. While in Canada, I did marketing for a Native American art gallery specializing in stone sculpture. In the United States, among other things, I was a travel agent and customer relations manager for a software company.  

I love discovering  new and exciting authors, artists, musicians, hiking and travel.
