Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m the girl who loves a daily dose of humor and fun: whether
laughing with friends over drinks or being goofy with my 10 year
I’m the girl who adores adventures, local: biking, hiking around
the bay…And far flung: exploring London’s nooks and crannies. Or
NYC, Sydney, Laos, Espana…A mix of urban/culture and nature makes
my heart sing.
I’m the girl thriving in career (Fortune 500 leadership coach &
published kid lit author :-)— balanced with ‘type B’ chill. I’m a
go-getter—and think it’s sexy being vulnerable with my guy.
I’m the girlfriend with goofy humor to make you laugh even when
your stressful day pushed you the limit.
I’m the girlfriend up for a taqueria, fine foodie foray, or cooking
you a delish gourmet dinner.
I’m the girlfriend who relishes pleasure—dance, massage,
affection—seeking a passionate, sexy, vibrant partnership.
I’m the girlfriend who offers sweet lush embraces and kisses you in
thanks when you open the car door for me.
I’m the girlfriend who enjoys frolicking and keeping it light. And
who savors deeper convos with you, packing communication skills for
a thriving, joyful relationship.
I’m happy in my life, seeking a compliment, not a clone. I’m ready
for adventure and game to have fun, as long as you’re willing to
try new things and see the world. More than anything, I’ll love
coming home to you. It starts with just hello…
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

independent consultant doing executive coaching and leadership

pitch my middle grade fantasy thriller novel to editors in NY.

snuggling, sometimes in conjunction with taking naps, having a
vision and making it reality for my life, procrastinating, (i
know--rather schizophrenic), wordsmithing, making fitness
a priority, being goofy
with friends, being sensitive to what's going on for others,
communication (helps that I teach it :-), giving my time to others,
shaking up routines and getting out to try new things and explore new

A book worm can't name just one favorite! I've recently enjoyed:
The Bone Clocks, The Outlander, the chortle-inducing Flavia de Luce
series, A Path With Heart by Jack Kornfield, If the Buddha Dated,
House of the Scorpion. I heart the public library and usually have
several reads going at once.
I like exploring new-to-me music. If a friend said, "Hey, let's
check out __" I would. Let's compare notes on concerts we've
As for food, I enjoy most cuisines under the sun. Avocados deserve
a national day of observance. I like a taqueria burrito as much as
the next person, and have gourmet tendencies. I balance healthy
eating and fitness with extravagent meals and
here and there. Did I mention cupcakes? Life is too
short not to indulge!

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have a college education, and LOVE reading at a 4th to 12th grade
reading level. As a children's author, I gotta study the
competition...I love it!
