With so many independent book stores biting the dust, it was very exciting to learn about
the Diesel Book Store that is alive and well in Brentwood. The store is buzzing with customers eager to find their next good read. Manager Lynn, keeps displays revolving and shelfs refreshed with the newest best sellers. Super supportive of local authors like myself, she was eager to put all three of my books on display. It is great to see such enthusiam for print books. I have a kindle and it is fine for travel, but I love holding a book in my hand.

Wai-nani sits prominently on the GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS table dedicated to female protagonists and memorbable women in history. Wai-nani, inspired by the life Ka'hahumanu who rose to become the most powerful woman in old Hawai'i deserves a seat at this table.
Lost Angel -Great Summer Read

I am so proud that my travel collection, Lost Angel Walkabout, just got a ringing endorsement from Julie Rosendo, Producer of the Emmy Award Winning PBS show Travel Scope hosted by her husband Joseph Rosendo. Makes my heart sing to get recognition from these top professionals in the travel world.
The Cowgirl Jumped Over the Moon received recognition in the 2015 Indie Excellence Awards. Horses, Romance and Adventure! " Who could ask for more from a book?" says publisher Jacqui Broderick who lives in Ireland AKA horse heaven.

The Brentwood Country Mart at 225 26th St in Santa Monica is a great place for lunch on the patio where ocean breezes keep it cool all year round.  Many gourmet choices along with baskets of chicken and ribs make this a great place to feed body and soul.
