I’m a scientist and an educator. I’m green, a vegetarian, a Democrat, a feminist, a lover of the outdoors, and a player of ice hockey. And I’m the mother of a beautiful, brilliant, fair, compassionate, and funny young woman; my best accomplishment!
I’m actually a biologist, with lots of years of experience teaching college-level bio classes. I know a lot about crows and crow behavior – the subject of my dissertation, and thereafter, research – and, unfortunately (it stresses me out!), our current climate and biodiversity crises. I live in San Diego with two cats, and am still going on awful online dates (sensu Mars, in the autobiographical Jim’s Not Dead)!
JND is my first venture into screenwriting. It is, in a small way, a tribute to my best friend of years ago, Bryan Obst (the character Adam); an extraordinary human.
I’m pretty happy that Jim’s Not Dead is getting read and making people laugh!
