About me

Occupation Photographer, Lawyer
Location Los Angeles, California, United States
Introduction I'm a professional photographer, a recovering attorney, an adjunct instructor of photography at a local community college and a four-time Jeopardy! Champion (Season 26.) Much of my spare time is spent learning to ride horses, an activity denied to me when I was a child. I love to cook and entertain and I am a passionate reader. I am married to an "old god" of the comic book world, writer Len Wein. He's the one who created Swamp Thing (with artist Berni Wrightson), the Human Target (with Carmine Infantino), Wolverine (with artists John Romita and Herb Trimpe), and Colossus, Storm, and Nightcrawler (with the late, great Dave Cockrum.)
Interests Horses, Riding, Reading, Photography, Entertaining, Food
Favorite Movies The Lord of the Rings (all three of them), The Adventures of Robin Hood (with Errol Flynn, of course), The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Shawshank Redemption, Galaxy Quest, Free Enterprise
Favorite Music John Denver, The Beatles, Christine Lavin, Janis Ian, Arlo Guthrie
Favorite Books The Lord of the Rings, Pride and Prejudice, A Free Man of Color, Lost Horizon, The Art of Horsemanship, Harry Potter, Temeraire, A Little Princess
