Bio

It must be pretty obvious that I'm a bit outlandish, an eclecticist, and all around weird being. Writer, artist, photographer, videographer, web dev, Stephen Minister, singer, UberGeek, Science Fiction fan girl, and on and on. One of the reasons for the nickname, Pedantic Bohemian. I got it way back in the 80's when I first began working for a daily newspaper. A news desk reporter friend of mine coined it when I took up the mantel of Lifestyles beat feature writer. . .and it's stuck ever since. I have to admit, it's pretty accurate. I started my education in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, studying film production. I went into the Navy briefly, then married a Navy man. That gave me the opportunity to travel and experience so many amazing things and people. I worked as a features reporter for newspapers and magazines, was a forgeign correspondent for Reuters, a library technician on an Air Force base, and even did a stint as a death investigator during my degree work in criminology and pathophysiology. That ended up being a rather. . .shall I say it. . .dead end job. I went on to get another degree in computer science and did web developing for a number of years while I wrote three very unsuccessful science fiction manuscripts. Following my divorce in 2003, I decided to write about what I know best: the law, the Navy and human nature. I have such a wide range of interests, I can't even begin to list them all. But if you check out my friends. . .you'll get the idea. God willing, TYPICAL MALE will be winging its merry way to a bookstore near you fall/winter 2010! And. . .if you're trying to figure out my writing style, imagine this: Tom Clancy and Jacqueline Susann had a love child. . .and that's me!
