Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.

    I love Corneille. It took me four years to learn his name. I heard "Avec Classe" once in the salon because my hair dresser had pirated cable and somehow ended up with the French hip hop channel and could not get the tune out of my head. One day, years later, I hard the song again and nearly fainted with happiness…
