I am a retired elementary school teacher, a grandmother, children's inspirational author, a calligrapher, and  an artist. I spent 23 years living on a boat and traveling up and down the coast of California.  During that time, I was published in Cruising World Magazine-- "The World Is My Home" and " A Sailor Is Born"articles about my life living aboard my 30 foot sloop, Arkenstone. Baggy Duck of Rainbow's End and Radiate Love are my first two published books.
