Welcome to this page which serves as a way of introducing myself to you. I am glad that you are here – and I hope to get to know you better through your comments and active participation in each of the areas of this website . . . my little section of the Internet.
I am happily married to the man that makes my life a joy, every day. We have two children. Our oldest son is 23 and our youngest son is 18. Both of the boys were homeschooled. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. We moved here from Northern California (Sacramento) 13 years ago. Yes, it gets hot in Las Vegas (it’s a dry heat – but so is a blow torch) . . . and no, we don’t gamble. We are owned by one Miniature Pinscher (Peaches) and two ferrets (Edward and Jacob).
About my family:
My husband is a magician in Las Vegas. Our oldest son has embarked on his own great adventure. He is engaged to be married in 2016. We enjoy spending time with our son and his fiancee. Our youngest son is interested in being a chef – and looks to start his own food blog, soon. We enjoy spending time with him, too!
About my hobbies:
I have an interest in many, many activities. I enjoy reading, writing, research, photography, collage, bricolage, genealogy, travel, good food, time with family and friends, theater and movies. I am utterly fascinated with British (particularly English) history, the Renaissance era, Shakespeare, Henry VIII (and his wives), Lady Jane Grey and the Lost Colony of Roanoke. I know. That last subject isn’t specifically “English” . . . but the roots of the Lost Colony began in England so I felt it was worthy of mention.
I collect rosaries and Monster High dolls.
About my working life:
Once upon a time, I owned an entertainment agency which specialized in providing magical performance packages (packages in which I also performed as a magician) which combined quality entertainment with unique catered elements.
I have been able to successfully combine my varied interests in order to incorporate them in my professional lives; past and present. I worked as a freelance performance magic and travel writer. I wrote two magic columns; one for the Las Vegas magic community as well as a magic column for a national audience with international reach. My photographic works have been featured on several websites, including the Shape of America program hosted by the American Institute of Architects. My written works have been featured in print as well as on numerous websites. I enjoy my work . . . and it shows!
In 2014 I finally learned the reason that rather serious issues regarding my heart had occurred for over 33 years. It had been discovered that I had a congenital heart defect (an extra piece in my heart) which caused my heart rate to sometimes beat in excess of 300 BPM. Two (failed) heart surgeries later – I now possess a pacemaker (rather unexpectedly) – so I have left the active pace required as a journalist and photographer behind me. I now work (exclusively) as an Independent Consultant and Team Builder (The BOND Girls) with Jamberry. I am still delighted with my work. Life is too short to do anything that one does not absolutely love and adore!
I am always interested in networking. Please feel free to contact me, any time.
