About me

Occupation Copyeditor and Creative Writer
Location East Coast, United States
Introduction About me: Born and raised in New Jersey, I came of age in the rockin’ generation of The Beatles and Motown. Moved to California when I was 27, lived there for 20 years, then back to the East Coast again. I am fascinated by science and the possibilities of the future. I also believe there is much to be learned from the past if we pause long enough to listen. I enjoy humor; I am spiritual (but not religious), believe in tolerance and compassion, and the power of chocolate (and dogs!) to brighten any day. I'm married and have adopted rescue dogs.

Please see the Legend of Jersey Lilly page and how this blog got its name.
