About meI've been living in southern Africa since 1999, first as a teacher in Lesotho and now teaching and writing outside of Cape Town. I self published "Spiral Aloe: Deceit in Lesotho, Africa's Mountain Kingdom" available on amazon. It's fiction/contemporary/travel/suspense/multicultural.

I'm also an archaeologist who worked in The Philippines with Chinese and Thai ceramics in late '80's. My husband and I have had a substantial work chapter in the southwest U.S.A., mostly in southern Utah but also New Mexico.

I've travelled independently to many Asian and African countries as well as Mexico, Guatemala and Argentina. I've built and renovated nine homes over the years and appreciate people who do physical work as well as tap-tap work!

About my libraryLiterary fiction as well as nonfiction dealing with archaeology/anthropology and travel.
