I write fun stories about all different kinds of people so that you and everyone else can get to know them better.

Favourite book
The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin

Six-word memoir
Unexpected consequences led to this moment.


  • In a stroke of extraordinary luck, I worked for 10 years apiece with two legendary American magazine editors: Paige Rense at Architectural Digest and Ruth Reichl at Gourmet. And they both still talk to me.
  • M.A., mass communications (California State University, Northridge); awarded Outstanding Graduate Thesis
  • B.A., sociology (University of California, Berkeley)

Deepest fear
I turned right when I should have turned left.
