Although I'm originally from Southern California (one of those rare 2nd generation SoCal natives), I've lived on the East Coast since 1974, New England for most of that. Hus and I have been married 40 years and counting. I am mom to 2 married and grown children, and Grammy to two adorable grandbabygirls and one adorable grandbabyboy. Until March 2011, I was a legal assistant by day; by night, I acted, directed and did whatever needed to be done with my local community theater group. I am now on hiatus, volunteering at the local library, taking millions of photographs and basically living the good life on the ocean with cats and a busy, bouncy charmer of a miniaussiedoodle!
