About -The Short Version
Funny, Sexy, Contemporary Romance, Sci Fi, & Humor
Founder of an international public relations firm and the VIP Silicon Valley Tech Tour (she was a technology history nerd). Much of her career incorporated her background in behavioral science working with companies in advanced technology marketing in Silicon Valley. Grew up in Orange County CA/ Santa Ana/Newport Beach.
Reinvented her life from business writer to creative in 2014 when she changed her job type to self-employed, bought a tiny trailer and traveled for 18 months – alone. She traveled in her ‘Writer’s Retreat’ and maintained a website and blog called LiveLaughRoll.com. In 2018, after the trailer was destroyed in a flash flood she decided to stay a while in southwest sunshine.
She’s the daughter of a church pastor and missionary parents who didn’t celebrate Christmas or really anything at all. She found this appealing but it forced her become a questioner of all things. This ultimately resulted in navigating her life path with a cynically raised eyebrow about pretty much everything. She’s an aloof introvert (or is that the same thing?) so writing is a good career choice.
I also write some steamy romance and Sci Fi (MF / MM) books under a Pen Name. If you’re interested, contact me.
