I love to read and write, to take care of kitties, to try new recipes and to discuss books over tea. Click a post and join me!
I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. I spent most of my life there raising a family, owning a business, and being involved with the community.
Now a senior citizen, I live with my daughter, Michelle, and her husband, George, in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. Just before coming to Dearborn, I had the chance to live with my daughter, Marci and her husband Akira, for almost a year in Hachioji, Tokyo, Japan. I have a bonus daughter, too, Mikaela, who lives in Puyallup, Washington. I am blessed to have these women as daughters and these men as sons-in-law, my teachers one and all.
I began writing eight years ago as a way to keep in touch with friends and family while I was living in Japan. This led to contributing to a book, and now I am working on a memoir.
I'm a contributing author!
Looking for a good book to read? I think you will enjoy Jodi Chapman and Dan Teck’s book, Goodness Abounds: 365 True Stories of Loving Kindness, available on Amazon. There are over 275 Soulful Contributors of which I am but one. I chose to tell a story about the life of a precious kitty named Amelia. Read her story here >>
