As an intelligence officer, I traveled extensively, covering most of Africa and Europe and parts of the Middle East.

Pictured on the left I'm in the Corbett Game Park in the foothills of the Himalayas, getting acquainted. On the right I'm enjoying life in Wyoming.

FAQS: I have a BA in History from the University of Oregon, received an MA in International Relations as a Wolcott Scholar at George Washington University. I then served my country before retiring to set up and run a Wyoming horse farm, training and showing Dutch Warmblood dressage horses.

Besides writing, I enjoy public speaking and am available for book talks on transforming family genealogical files into family memoirs. Additionally, I am on the Wyoming Humanities Council Forum list of presenters, addressing the issue: "Spies, Secrecy, and the CIA in a Democracy."
