I have been called a luddite with good reason. I communicate with people by telephone, letters and spending time with them. I keep my email address a secret. So why am I now starting a website? Well … I saw the movie “Chef” and a new door opened in my mind. At the same time my unpublished novel “Woman at the Window” won an honorable mention in the Leapfrog Press 2014 Fiction Contest. Wonderful, I thought, but how will anyone find it or me? Maybe I could create a website and print a few chapters there. . .?
I have wanted to be a writer since I was 7, but took a long break to get married at 19, have two daughters, go to law school part-time when they were 9 and 13 and work as an attorney for the Puyallup Indian Nation, the Seattle Indian Center and United Indians of All Tribes Foundation. My husband (same one!) and I have three interesting and wonderful grandchildren. I have two published novels, The Circle Leads Home, University Press of Colorado (1998), and They Called Me Bunny , Livingston Press at University of West Alabama (2006), also several articles and short stories.
