Hi. I'm a writer, a photographer, a composer, a good bridge 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 listening to good music and collect political buttons. I tinker around on the 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 a novel and am working on a second one (a political thriller). I'm not very good at small talk, but I like substantive conversations with women who are curious about the world around them.
