Chocolate, yoga, teaching, walking my dog and film are some of the activities I really enjoy. My recent travel adventures include Hong Kong, Washington, DC, HoChiMinh City and the Big Island of Hawaii. I have completed a novel that traces the life of my family's housekeeper in South Carolina from the Jim Crow Days of the 50's to the Civil Rights actions of the '60's. Being Mortal is my most recently completed read. I like The Good Wife, Downton Abbey and Mad Men. I teach at one of the universities here in LA and have a small private counseling practice. I don't think I'll ever retire.
