About The Author

GwenI describe myself as a maverick and I love my freedom. I dare to live the life I’ve dreamed for myself. I have gone forward and made my dreams come true. (Quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson).

Life is about taking chances and I have no constraints. Taking chances have allowed me to grow and expand, and experience new endeavors and savor the many opportunities life has to offer. I cannot stand still; I’m afraid if I were to, I would perish mentally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually. Standing still or doing nothing is definitely not for me.

I love being around family, friends, and strangers–those who love to laugh, who love people–and enjoy all that this wonderful life has in store for each of us. The world is a melting pot of many things and I love having conversations about what is happening in my world.

I’ve done many things on a whim and list a few here:

  • rode a bicycle 330 miles from NC to DC in the DC Aids Ride
  • played in the World Series of Poker for Women
  • finished the More Magazine “Marathon for Women over 40” at age 55
  • took a three-week vacation of a lifetime to Down Under

I am a 2002 Living Kidney Donor to a twelve-year old boy, whom I have met and both our families stay in touch.

My two furry children, Paco and Princess, 15-year-old Lhasa Apsos, are the center of my universe.

I’ve accomplished everything I’ve set out to do. And now, I share another accomplishment that I can scratch off my bucket list. I’m a published author with two titles: my debut novel, The Missing Five and the sequel, Dubbed The Masked Kidnapper, which are available in paperback at and Barnes and, and downloaded to your eReader at and soon Kindle.
