There’s nothing as  broadening as soaking up the sights, sounds, and tastes of another culture.

I’ve had the good fortune to live in and travel widely throughout the U.S., and I’m a travel junkie with much of  Mediterranean Europe, the Caribbean, Argentina, Perú, and China under my belt, with a long bucket list yet remaining.  I’ve been traveling to Mexico since 1975, and have lived  since 2013.

I most enjoy  self-guided travel that takes me off the beaten path and gives me lots of opportunity to talk with ordinary people who live in these extraordinary places.

My travels are documented in words and photos on this blog, and my portfolio of travel photos can be seen on Pinterest.

My latest novel, The Mirasol Redemption, is set in the Mexican state of Jalisco and was published in August, 2015.  My  first novel, Lifelines, was published in 2014 (read more about here on

My collection of short stories, Laguna Tales, was published in 2011, and is set in Mexico.  My short stories also appear in two anthologies, Embracing The Fog, and Mexico:  Sunlight & Shadows.
