I come from a family who loves the written word. MY parents were avid readers and crossword puzzle (and Scrabble) enthusiasts. Mom wrote young adult novels, my brother Dave writes the Dave Lloyd western historical series.
I am a professional artist much like the female amateur detective, Jessie O'Bourne, in my novels. I send paintings to national exhibitions, teach the occasional workshop, pet (and often argue with) the cat, but so far have not had the occasion to solve a murder.

Hey, my personal approach to writing is first trying to find a spare minute to jot some ideas down, then flesh them out in the middle of the night- forget the idea - find it again, etc... I am the queen of sporadic writing but loving every minute of it. It's like painting with words.
