I was spit out amongst the West Texas sandstorms in 1962. Perhaps that’s why I’ve always felt a bit like a tumbleweed, ready to move wherever the wind blows me. I have lived in Texas, New York City, Los Angeles, and Tucson, Arizona. I like to think my sense of humor has been informed by David Sedaris, Nora Ephron, and, mostly, my mom… but they might not like to think that. Thank you for reading ...more
