I live in Santa Rosa, CA and work as an accountant for the Sonoma Humane Society. My work office usually is full of kittens and puppies I am fostering, which is the best volunteer job I have ever had! My husband of 40+ years is retired, and keeps himself busy with quilting, cooking, and we both volunteer with the Lions Club. Our son, his wife, and their 1-year old son Mason also live in Santa Rosa and we love being grandparents. In my spare time I make and sell jewelry at a few art shows, a couple of art galleries, and online, I occasionally write a website or two, including this one.
