Hi. I'm a writer, a photographer, a composer, a good bridge player, a decent tennis player and a lousy golfer (am I missing anything? Probably.) I follow baseball and politics closely. I read the Times and listen to NPR every day, love good music and collect political buttons. I still know my way around a piano and pull my camera out when it's sunny (hate cloudy days). I was a newspaper reporter for many years, then got in and out politics. I've written and published two novels (both political thrillers). I'm not good at small talk, but I like substantive conversations with women who are curious about the world around them.
