Places I've Been

I love to travel and since I've started writing it seems that everything I experience influences my writing in some way. 

2015 Trip to Istanbul and Cairo

This trip was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The people in Turkey and especially Egypt were wonderful - warm, welcoming, so appreciative that we were visiting their countries. It was life changing.

The Beach

Growing up and living in Louisiana makes the Florida beaches a favorite vacation destination.

Favorite place to stay in Perdido.

Beautiful sunsets.

Up close and personal with marine life (Ray and crab).

Watching storms roll in over the Gulf of Mexico.

Watching sunset from our favorite restaurant patio.

Serenity, peace and quiet.
