She is a cartoonist, writer, and pianist. "I love to create characters that range from the whimsical to the anamorphic goofballs, to the awesomely abnormal humans. I write and illustrate children's books including a picture book series for ages 5 to 10 called 'A Horse Valley Adventure'. 'Max's Day at School' is my latest and third book of the series. I also have a 'Horse Valley Toons' comic strip on my website that follows the comical adventures of my Horse Valley crew, Max, Jack, Lax, Donkey, and the young mischievous Twiddle and Dwiddle. My home is in Southern California with a playful yellow lutino budgie named Peeps that is always willing to help me when I get stuck on a project.
