I was born in Oroville, Ca, on 6/19/47. I've been a Californian all
my life, although I have lived all over the state. My parents went to
Bible college in L.A. when I was a child and then were assigned to
several different churches over the years until I was in high school,
when we settled here for good. I have been married twice, have six kids
and four grandkids. I worked as a Guidance Associate in our local
schools until last June when I was laid off due to budget cuts. I have
watched Days since I was in high school, when it started, and I have
watched Passions since it began. I love to paint, I write poems, some of
which have been published, and I love spending time with my grandkids.
My favorite color is red, my favorite food is chocolate anything, and my
drink of choice is plain iced tea. I love rain, snow, and watching the
leaves change colors in the Fall.
