When Hurricane Coltrane came to me, it moved in like the storm it was named for and opened up such a creative fury it was difficult to collect. It's been a lot of hard work since then and I've loved it!

I grew up all over the United States, and studied in East Asia, though my roots reach deep into the Southern Utah desert where most of my family members still live. I currently hale from the San Francisco Peninsula with my story-adoring husband and daughter who keep me busy and inspired.

It was for me for many years before selling my first book.

But don't let it be joyless. Write with your heart while attending to craft and you will eat many meals on the product, figuratively if not literally. (less)

"Great retelling.

What an awesome adventure. While I know nothing of Japanese Myths or Legends I was enthralled with the characters in this story. I felt so sorry of Furi and how she had to suffer the punishment from others. I was so excited when life" Read more of this review »
