The first fiction I wrote was in the 4th grade.The plot had worked and the characters were colorful. My teacher, a nun at Holy Rosary Grade School, was quite astonished. She immediately assigned me to the school newspaper. Reporting the campus news on deadline was not in my nature, and that dissolved my desire to write.

After decades of wondering whether I should write or not, I tossed the question to the Universe and waited for the answer. It came in an acceptance letter from Bread Loaf School of English/Middlebury College immediately after graduation from the University of Hawaii Maui College. For five following summers, I traveled to Vermont, Alaska, New Mexico and then to Oxford, England where I received my Masters in English in 2004. I published my first book, Spirit of the Village A Maui Memoir, the following year.
