I'm from England, but have lived in CA for most of my life. Moving to Ventura 9 years ago felt like coming home.
I'm sometimes accused of working too much, and it's true, which is why I'm considering developing some sort of a social life. Since I work for myself, my schedule is pretty much my own to fix. I have two careers. I'm published in non-fiction and mystery fiction, and I'm a forensic handwriting examiner.
My kids are grown and I don't have grandchildren, so could conceivably enjoy yours.
