I am a published writer, consultant and taking a long break from working towards getting my PhD in instructional design for online learning for older adults.
Among my passions including nature, the wilderness, antiques, vintage, old trains and planes (I soloed in a 1946 Aeronca Champ) and books, I share my life with a loving, funny Boxer dog who makes me laugh multiple times a day.
The American West especially the high deserts and mountain ranges is one of my favorite areas of the world.
