I was born in Italy, where I received a B.A. in Foreign Languages and Literatures (English and French). I received a Master’s Degree in English with TESOL concentration at Sacramento State, where I taught for nine years. I then left to teach full time at Sacramento City College, where I continue to teach ESL courses, mostly reading and writing.
In my free time, I like to read science fiction and mysteries. I enjoy gardening, walking my yellow lab, watching movies, and beading. In summer, my husband and I like to go camping and travel to other western states.
