Hi everyone! *waving from San Diego*
Big thanks to Crystal for inviting me back to Reading Between the Wines!
I often get asked what I do when I’m not writing or reading, and today I’m going to lift that curtain and let you take a peek behind the scenes… Ready?
Before I started writing seriously, I used to perform in musicals and even sang for a season with San Diego Opera. I was also in a few comic operas with San Diego Lyric Opera. Music has always been a passion for me, and I still have one professional gig as a church soloist because I just can’t stop singing. I’m pretty sure part of my soul would die! LOL
If you’re curious, you can hear samples of my songs on Amazon and I have a couple of CDs out….
I’m also really intrigued by anything paranormal and I have a blast giving tours of America’s Most Haunted Residence, the Whaley House in San Diego on Thursday nights. I get to meet people from all over the world and share the history and the spooks of San Diego’s first two story brick house.
I post pictures of the orbs and apparitions I get on my phone over on Pinterest, so check it out when you get a chance.
And here’s a shot of me getting ready to perform as the Ghost of Christmas Past in the Whaley House version of A Christmas Carol. See the wide beam of light coming from the picture of the Whaley’s in the upper left and coming down diagonally across my dress? That’s a large moving orb… I like to think it’s the Whaleys giving me their good wishes for a great show! LOL You never know, right?
I also love to visit old graveyards. Something about going and reading the names that probably haven’t been spoken out loud in decades makes me feel like the spirits get a little boost by being remembered. Here are some graveyard pics I really like…
