Bio
Born in a utopian community in a scenic part of Alabama, I've been an actress, a journalist and public relations executive, and a producer of theatre both in Switzerland and the U.S. I now live in Kingston, NY, a nice, historical little city near my daughter and my grandsons. I've started four blogs, written three books, and enjoy my busy life as a not-so-retired person.

Going Electronic and other Pieces of My Mind

When I was 12 years old the Dodgers were still in Brooklyn. Why this mattered to me, growing up in South Alabama, I don't really know.
