As her family traversed the desert in search of crops for their herds of karakul sheep, a childhood filled with strange legends, amazing animals and wonderful people, became her universe.
The gift of music by Mario Lanza and other tenors accompanied them on their travels and called to her soul’s desire to share her voice.
When she left to study with other voice obsessives, it introduced her to a world far beyond her beloved Africa and brought fantastic performance opportunities.
Storytelling, such a big part of her childhood, became an inherent element in her performances, and she never stopped writing down her stories. When, due to illness, she could no longer share her voice as she had through singing opera, writing became her perfect creative outlet.
She writes contemporary romance to explore love, women's fiction to understand love and middle-grade novels to give love. What more is there than love?
