As a writer and photographer, my work has appeared in Fast Company, Women's Sports, USAir Magazine, Soap Opera Digest, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and Examiner, Inventors Digest, Electrical Contractor, and many other publications.
Since the publication of Women Invent! Kids Inventing! and Women Heroes of the American Revolution, I have had the honor of doing many presentations about those books at venues including the Houston Forum, the Montana Educator’s Conference, the UCLA Women’s Leadership Conference, Edufest, the Charlotte S. Huck Children’s Literature Festival, the Orange County Children’s Book Festival, Humboldt County Children's' Author Festival, Cal Day at UC Berkeley, Confratute, the Conference of the Montana Association of Gifted and Talented Education, at conventions of the California School Librarians Association, the California Reading Association, the California Teachers of English, and at branches of the Los Angeles Public Library, the Los Angeles County Library, the Orange County Library, community organizations, and the Malaysia Invention, Innovation and Technology Exposition (ITEX).
I live in Los Angeles. In my free time, I read, hang out at coffee shops like so many others, working some and chatting some, visit libraries for the quiet, go to theaters and museums for inspiration and row on a crew with others in Marina del Rey. As I make my way around Southern California I am always up to stop at random ethnic restaurants and the ubiquitous taco trucks. It's always a delight to discover new foods and places. Life is full of surprises!
