Recovering journalist, current novelist who likes to tear computers apart.
I'm a recovering print journalist with more than a decade in newsrooms and an AP award to my credit. While I covered almost all news beats from cops/courts to education to sports, I made my home in local and state news, with occasional feature stories. My coverage of how the Bullhead City (AZ) City Council used the phone lines to sidestep open meeting laws earned an Arizona Associated Press award for best in-depth coverage.
Retiring from print in 1997, I eventually brought the same attitude, depth of coverage, and wit to online writing. While semi-active on the online scene, in 2014 I put my resources into longer fiction, publishing four novels in those two years. In 2016 I published The Beta Testers, a technothriller.
I serve as a full-time family caregiver to an aged parent, and have credentials as a professional musician.
