Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Warm, witty widow. Native New Englander, arrived on the shores of
LA a number of years ago via NYC. Am the mother of two grown sons
who were raised to be entertaining and most definitely are. An
excellent conversationalist, I can be taken anywhere and will be
asked back by the grateful hostess. Also adept at listening without
interruption. I laugh easily and am intrigued by great drama (have
you seen what's on cable lately?), history, and all those cooking
shows on the Food Network.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
A former feature film development executive, I work with clients as
a story editing consultant. I also write and need my own story
editor when I'm stumped. We had to put down our 16 year old dog
last November so I am seriously contemplating getting another one.
The house is empty without her. I'm enjoying all that great
television, the company of friends, the occasional movie, my
library books, and my morning walks by the Silver Lake reservoir.
And I jump on any opportunity to have a good laugh.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing. Helping writers by advocating for the material. Making
others laugh. Cracking myself up. Using my own experience,
intuition and powers of observations to gain insight into and
understanding of others. Listening. Trivia -- am a game show
veteran. Relaxing. Traveling -- I love to fly. Conversation -- I
find it easy to talk to just about anyone. Irreverence -- there's
humor in just about everything.

"The Lovely Bones" by Alice Siebold. All of Somerset Maugham. "The
Bean Trees" by Barbara Kingsolver.

Sopranos". Emmy Lou Harris. George Jones.
Thai. Chinese. Japanese. Indian. Mexican. Italian. Okay, regarding
food? I'm easy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My older son. My younger son. My remote. My sense of humor. My
favorite pen. Crossword puzzles.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My work. My sons. People I love and have loved. What I'm going to
eat for my next meal. What's on tv tonight. Who might be at that
party. Where'd I put that library book? Oatmeal or Cream of Wheat?
Should I bring my phone charger in case there's an earthquake?
Scrambled or boiled?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with like-minded friends. Except when I'm home reading/playing
Words with Friends/surfing the net/laughing at friends' comments on
Facebook/watching tv. All at the same time, sometimes.
Multi-tasking is exhausting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look and act younger than my years.
