"I enjoy writing short stories when time permits. I enjoy white-water rafting, running, and the martial arts. I have traveled extensively throughout the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska. I love international travel as well. During the past few years I have toured Jordan, Egypt, Thailand, Hong Kong, Morocco, Western Europe, much of Australia, Mexico, Turkey and Greece, Scandinavia, the British Virgin Islands, and Costa Rica. I am a lover of the cinema. And, I'm married to a librarian!"
