A temporary resident of San Diego, I spend my weekends seeking out the weird and wonderful sights that do not always make it into travel guides. Not so much the road less travelled, but the dirt patches and potholes that aren’t even strictly roads. My passion is for emptiness - abandoned buildings, desolate natural spots, scenes of tragedy or trauma. I was fortunate enough to spend my honeymoon at the site of the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant disaster.
I write travel articles, short stories and am currently working on four novels. I live in La Jolla with my allowing husband and our pet rats, Dexter and Rudy. My favourite place in the world is Lake Crescent in Washington state.
