About Me

Paper, ink and pencils have always been an obsession in my life.  My mom wouldn’t let me eat sugary sweets, but she couldn’t stop me from drawing pictures of them.  My dad taught me how to play baseball like a boy, but that didn’t stop me from writing about princesses being rescued by valiant knights.

I wrote for Space.com’s entertainment section in the 90’s and with my experience there, developed a deep interest in Mars and the idea of terraforming the red planet. This interest is reflected in a series of short stories about Mars available on Kindle ebook.

I like to think that I learn enough from past experiences not to make the same mistake twice.  I fell in love with the first man that told me I was beautiful.  My first marriage ended in divorce, and so I left the choice of my second husband up to God.  He sent Sam.  I call him my Hobbit.  He is a deaf-blind craftsman and the best man I’ve ever known. I share tidbits of my life with him at my blog: With Closed Captions.  Because of Sam, I am bilingual.  I incorporate much of my knowledge of ASL, Deaf Culture and the many experiences I have into my writing.

My art is on several websites and I have a store on etsy.  I think the world is full of magic, and I hope my art and writing reflects a positive, uplifting ‘modern mythology’ for all true seekers.

  2. Hi! When my older son (now 8) was a baby, I learned many ASL signs, but taught them as signed English because I didn’t/don’t know anyone who is deaf to teach me the actual language. We taught and used signs with him and helped him communicate at a much earlier age. We are using it again with our new little one (13 months now) but he is talking younger than his older brother did. I know a few hundred signs at this point. Do you think it will be hard for me to learn ASL after doing SE for so long? I want to take a class (or learn from the deaf community if I can) at some point, but I wonder have I made it harder on myself by doing it the way I have? Thanks :)
