I am a graduate of the Universtiry of South FLorida with BA\'s in Journalism and Political Science. I have written for the St. Pete Times, The Tampa Tribune and various magazines. I wrote the Florida Bicycle Book even though I cannot ride a bicycle. A birth defect has caused limited mobility but not limited life experiences. I worked as marketing director and tour manager for a children\'s theater group and traveled to Australia and Asia to book their first international tour. In 1989 I began working as a consultant to the Seminole Indians. At some of their events I started telling Cherokee legends learned from my father. For 15 years I toured the US and Canada teaching and sharing Native stories. I have four CD\'s of music and legends that are available on my web site at www.nativestyles.com and still live with my husband of 52 years in our tour bus.
