My writing career has come full circle. I graduated with a degree in journalism but ended up becoming a technical editor and writer. While working at companies, such as Lockheed, Applied Material, Novellus, and SBC, I created user guides, tutorials, online help and web content. Later, my creative side yearned for release so I started writing articles, blogs, and columns. I even became a ghost writer when a horse trainer asked that I write his second training book which was published in 2004. Now I do both types of writing as much as possible.

When I am not writing or working on business-related stuff, I spend time with my family (husband, teenage son, and daughter in law school) and my pets (an English Mastiff, a Labrador Retrievor, and a cat). Animals make great companions.

I do have several addictions–riding my horse and knitting. I have always loved horses and now feel privileged to own one. As for knitting, I taught myself three years ago and now love it. Every time I sit down I pick up my needles and start knitting. My current project is making teddy bears for children infected or affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations.
