Love reading and writing? Searching for intelligent writing that’s heartfelt (tails), fun, and often animal-loving (happiness and tails)? You’re in the right place! If you enjoy the ideas and sensibility here, you’ll love my novels once they’re published — “Flamenco & the Sitting Cat” and its sequel, “Tango & the Sitting Cat”. I absolutely adore reading and they’re the sorts of books I love. They’re my one huge love letter to all who worry that they’re too old, too damaged, or too whatever to find love and happiness with or without a partner.
Before I became a novelist, I was a reporter for cable TV, radio, and print, as well as a visual artist. (Some of my art is featured in “New Directions in Altered Books,” by Gabe Cyr and California State Long Beach’s literary journal, Rip Rap.) My journalism awards include an Emmy.
My childhood was spent between U.S. coasts and parts of Spain while I corresponded with my grandmother in Argentina. My Iranian-American husband and I share a passion for world dance, cuisine, music, travel, and literature. The charming lab-mix dog in the photo keeps me from sitting too long at these keys.
