Meet The Valley Girl

The author was born and raised in Hollywood until the age of seven.  In 1958 she moved with her family to Encino in the San Fernando Valley, and attended Lanai Road Elementary School, foreshadowing her move to a Hawaiian  paradise twenty years later.  Her Valley home on Empress Avenue, and neighboring streets like Mooncrest and Oakview reveal a further synchronicity with the invisible, magical world.  Perhaps this accounts for her familiarity with the faerie realm and all the love that resides there.

Eyes of a  Valley Girl  is her attempt to share some of this world with her readers, and how the magic, which is love, becomes apparent even when it isn’t seen.   The main character, Marianne, navigates a swirling brew of family, friends, school, French culture, Viet Nam, and an alcoholic family, as she prepares to graduate from Birmingham High School in Van Nuys, California.
