Sobre Minha Biblioteca
Lots and lots of books waiting to be read, plus a bunch I've read and kept. My favorite authors are Joseph Conrad and Philip Roth. I also have a couple of nice, big shelves of books about baseball and a fairly well-stocked shelf about music, specifically jazz.
About Me

I'm a mostly retired freelance writer (and former used bookstore owner) living in Boonville, CA. I grew up in New Jersey, went to college at Boston University and then went off to see America. I've washed dishes in San Diego, bussed tables in Seattle, waited tables in New Orleans and spent a bunch of time exploring points in between. I got lucky and landed a spot first as a volunteer and eventually as a jazz/blues producer/host at WWNO, the NPR affiliate in New Orleans. I did that from 1980 through 1986, at which point I moved to San Francisco to get an MA in Literature/Creative Writing at San Francisco State. After that I was first a teacher and then the Publications Coordinator for the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. That all led up to my establishing Rocket Words, my writing & editing business, in 2000. For 11 years, I did lots of different kinds of writing for lots of different kinds of clients and publications. For about five years, I concentrated pretty heavily on jazz journalism and then went back back mostly to client work. Then for almost eight years I owned and operated Village Books in Ukiah, CA (the county seat of Mendocino County). I had a great time running the store and interacting with book lovers all day long! Now I'm retired, though kept busy for the time being with non-profit board work. I'm a huge music (jazz/rock/blues/folk) and baseball fan. Also enjoy travel and hiking. I am deliriously happily married.
