Living in San Diego, California, I write about every corner and cubbyhole of this beautiful city, and I love writing about the people who live and work in the Southern California region. My photographs are of people, places and events, some taken during travel to other states, particularly Kansas, where I was born and raised.

For the past three decades, I have gained recognition for my well-written articles in newspapers and magazines. My bright, clear photographs often accompany the written material. Southern California Media Professionals, an affiliate of the National Federation of Press Women, has given me several state and national awards for my published articles with photographs. My journalism career has also earned me many San Diego Press Club awards over the years.

Many of my articles with photographs may be viewed directly at and .

My short fiction and poetry have also been published in the Acorn Review, the literary journal of Grossmont College in El Cajon, California.
