About the Author
I grew up in an idyllic town perfect for daydreaming and storytelling. Stories carried me through a service mission to the Dominican Republic and my university education. But while I love the arts, science pays the bills. I've worked as a dietitian among the diverse population of southern California and now I'm a professor of nutrition & dietetics as well as a wife and mother. The miracles I've seen as a friend and advocate for those on the cultural fringe serve as the basis of my creative writing.
