I am a writer living on my family’s working cattle ranch on the Central Coast of California. I am a fifth-generation Californian who was born and raised in San Francisco and then traded in the fog for sunshine to earn a degree in Journalism from San Diego State University. I studied my Junior year abroad in Florence, Italy, where I cooked and ate a lot of handmade pasta and chocolate biscotti. Upon graduation, I moved to Washington, D.C. where I covered Capitol Hill for Thomson Newspapers (now Thomson Reuters). When I moved home to California, I went to work as a staff writer for McClatchy Newspapers. After that, I was a staff writer at  the independently-owned, award-winning weekly, The Pinnacle, in Hollister, Calif. and spent several years freelancing and in corporate communications.

When I am not writing, I help market our family ranch’s certified Morris Grassfed beef to customers throughout California. The experience has raised my awareness of the value of food that is produced close to home, processed as little as possible, and prepared in a kitchen filled with family and friends. I recently published my first novel, Exit Strategy.
