I have been traveling for as long as I can remember, starting with many cross-country summer vacations with my parents as a child. By the time I graduated from high school I had been to almost all of the states in the USA. A few years living in Brazil sparked a love affair with South America. I engulfed myself in the Travel Industry for over 20 years. I have traveled to over 70 countries and 50 states. (Yes, I collect countries and states like other people collect salt and pepper shakers).
Some of my many passions in life are learning about cultures, peoples and other ways of life. I love to write about the world and its beauty. I love to scrapbook, do yoga and teach Tai Chi Chih. I love to taste wine and enjoy good food. Good thing I married a great cook!
I’m in the process of writing a Young Adult novel that takes place in Peru.
