Illinois Connection

I moved to Chicago when I was ten years old and lived in Rogers Park. It was the mid-fifties and the neighborhood was great with good schools and transportation. We lived two blocks from the lake. I graduated from Gale grammar school Sullivan high school. I moved around after graduation, but lived in Chicago from the end of 1967 through the 1968 Democratic Convention in August. I moved to California and lived there for seven years, graduating from college with a BA in Business Management. I have lived in Chicago since 1975 interrupted from 1979-81 by a stay in Omak, Washington. I was married in Chicago in June, 2001. I love it here and plan to stay during retirement.

Biographical and Professional Information

My true passion was always writing. I self-published my first book in 2010--A Sixties Story--the story of how I went from being a popular high school cheerleader to being part of the counterculture of the sixties and seventies in the U.S. My day jobs were in direct marketing management, as an executive assistant and as a proofreader.
