Gender Female
Occupation Author
Location Braga, Braga, Portugal
Introduction Thanks for stopping by. I'm a happily married author who recently moved to Portugal with my husband. We also like to travel to Galicia, Spain, just a couple of hours north of Braga. We used to travel to India, where my husband is from originally, although he has been a U.S. citizen for 44 years. I blog about the many things I uncover in my research and travels. I write mysteries, historical fiction, poetry, and children's books. I hope you will visit often and leave comments and tell me about yourself.
