Welcome to my wacky books! Life is nothing if not humorous, and I find inspiration for my stories in the oddest places -- old screwball comedy movies, cartoons, and of course, real life. In Switched, Bothered and Bewildered, Seabridge is a fictional location in Washington loosely based on Poulsbo, a small town near where I grew up. Natives will recognize the Alamo Theatre, where I spent much of my youth -- I wasn’t at the Lynwood Theatre. I was even an usherette at the Admiral Theatre in Bremerton for one summer! Yes, I love movies!
