I live in the high desert of Yucca Valley, CA. I've been a part time poet and fiction writer in the genres of dark fantasy and horror for years, having sold stories and poems to quite a range of magazines and anthologies. I write much less now; I own my own business and sell clothing and jewelry and other knick-knacks at Renaissance Faires and Celtic and Highland festivals mostly in California, but occasionally veering off toward Nevada and Arizona as well. Autumn is my season, Halloween my high holiday. I am an animal lover, an avid reader, and belong to no organizations whatsoever. I was born in May, 1960.
