I've lived in Santa Cruz for over 35 years, and love the area's natural beauty, diversity and lifestyle. I've been writing professionally for more than 25 years, and my background in art, computers and business have allowed me to write on a variety of topics. But my passion is writing for children, and I recently signed my first book contract with http://www.pugaliciouspress.com/. The book is written for teens and titled Call Me Butterfly, in which, after a tragic accident, a 15-year-old and her family in 1775 New Spain, Mexico, join Juan Bautista de Anza's historic colonization expedition to California where she'll discover not only romance but truths that will change the way she sees her ancestry, her family, and herself.
