      Stories have been running through my head for as far back as I can remember In the most ordinary of places and situations I would often imagine a different, intriguing reality It was not until much later in my life that I began to write down some of these tales My books take place in the foreign lands where I have lived, traveled, and worked Most of my working life has been as an educator, starting out as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Brazil At other times, when I needed to pay for university and or required a break from the profession , I worked in nightclubs and corner bars I am also a travel essayist and have blogged for Lonely Planet.
