I was born and raised in St. Louis, Mo. I migrated to the west coast over thirty years ago. I own and operate Winfred's Hair Salon, in San Francisco, CA. I opened my salon in 1973 and soon after began writing a weekly column "As Winfred" in The San Francisco Sun Reporter newspaper, offering hair care advice and detailing my "easy care, beautiful hair" philosophy and techniques.I have worked with a broad and diverse group of clients that has included political activist Angela Davis, Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and singer Nancy Wilson. I began my writing career six years ago and have since written a number of short stories, and three novels. I'm currently working on my fourth novel.
