She grew up in territorial Hawaii, coming to the mainland after Pearl Harbor was bombed. I'm enjoying writing historical fiction, and currently examining more women in my family tree that I'd like to write about!(less)

“Collaborative workshops and writers' peer groups hadn't been invented when I was young. They're a wonderful invention. They put the writer into a community of people all working at the same art, the kind of group musicians and painters and dancers have always had.”
