Unabashed | Speaker

|I live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area, but have often been known to travel.

|I speak on all kinds of subjects: ‘Critical Thinking’, ‘Creative Writing’, 'Postwar British History', ‘British Crime Films’, the Climate Crisis, and yeah, yeah, yeah, 'The Beatles'.


|I am a longstanding faculty member of the writer's craft based annual Book Passage Mystery Writers Conference, held in Corte Madera, Marin County, CA.

|As a San Francisco Library 'Literary Laureate' I've spoken  at SF's Annual 'Litquake', have appeared at numerous Book Festivals and Mystery Author Conventions, and have been a regular at the fabled MWA 'Murder At The Bar' events.

|I've been a featured speaker at the National Kidney Foundation's Annual Charity Event in San Francisco and Sacramento, California. Spoken at Libraries, Book Shops, Rotary Clubs, Philosophical Societies, and Film Clubs.

|I was a longtime board member, curator, and presenter of the annual San Francisco 'Mainly British Film Festival' 

|As an ‘Unabashed Beatles Expert’ I've written an in-depth history of the early years of The Beatles, as well as a standalone mystery novel…with a backbeat that explores many of the still unanswered questions about the origins of the fabled band. I've spoken about The Beatles at Rotary Clubs, philosophical societies, and film clubs on both sides of the country. And each and every time have found that every generation re-discovers The Beatles for themselves.

The Annual Marilyn Wallace Memorial Lecture

I was privileged to have once been one of Marilyn Wallace's students.
A wonderfully inspiring teacher of infinite grace and wisdom.
And still very much missed by all who knew her.
