About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation Guidebook Author
Location New Orleans, LA, United States
Introduction My hubby (Daniel) and I live in three awesome places: New Orleans, Los Angeles, and northern Michigan. We have a kitty named Ruby Azazel - sometimes, she's an angel, and sometimes, she's not. When I'm not helping Dan with his film fests and audio tours, I'm writing travel articles and guidebooks, contributing to, and editing my Ruby Hollow trilogy.

You have to dig a hole to China. Where do you start?

Funny you should ask. Why, I'd start the dig in southern Kentucky, of course - specifically, deep within the Mammoth Cave system (which just so happens to be the principal setting in my first novel). I know, shameless plug... but Blogger asked the question. Sheesh.
