Writer/veterinarian

I write science fiction. As a sideline, I write humor/suspense meant for animal lovers. My science fiction is set in the near future and uses trends to project what might have an impact on the lives of the people who could be our grandchildren and great-grandchildren, because it's the way we confront the big issues that interests me most. For example, how are we going to deal with each other when some of us, and only some of us, can afford the genetic engineering that can offer us perpetual youth and near-immortality?

In the words of one reviewer, my speculative fiction "adroitly juxtaposes action scenes with subtle social commentary and character development."

No matter how serious the subject - murder, kidnapping, corrupt politicians, the collapse of civilization - so far I find that twinges of humor crop in. It seems unavoidable. Her favorite characters all seem to agree with George Bernard Shaw: "Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."
