Now a little about me ... I live in a small house at the top of a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It's a beautiful setting, something like the Hollywood Hills, a neighborhood of homes perched down the hill into a valley. Trees hug my house. Possums, racoons, and a family of skunks (really!) live nearby. Birdsong wakes me every morning.
It's a wonderful place to live and write. I work most days some ten to twelve hours in my downstairs office where I have two computers — a big PC on which I write, and a laptop where I handle email. The laptop goes with me when I travel. Books — my longtime friends — fill the office of course.
