I am a life long Arizona resident who has lived in Tucson, Glendale and now Sedona. When I retired from teaching writing, I decided that it was time to write about the topics that interested me. I currently write about Arizona history and have had three books published so far. My first is about Arizona's early tourists and historic hotels, How Arizona Sold its Sunshine: Historical Hotels of Arizona. My next two books, combine my interest in historic postcards of Arizona with historcal text. A Journey Through Northern Arizona and A Journey Through Southern Arizona. I am currently writing a book of short stories about growing up in Tucson in the 1950s and 1960s. I also love writing about antiques and collectibles and I freelance articles for several collectors magazines. My dream job would be a book reviewer.
