About Just L

KBLA SlubOxford 2

Goddess, writer, poet, biker chick, rocker, wine geek, fashionista, authentic, powerful, loud, and sexy hopeful romantic… Deal with it.

I write for a living. I spend much of my time writing silly, semi-autobiographical love poems to avoid work deadlines. I was first published in the Love Blender Digest, the web’s original love poetry community, in 1997, and continue to be a featured contributor. Find my romantic poetry published at www.loveblender.com

I was educated at the University of California, San Diego and the University of Oregon. I hold a B.A. in political science and an M.A. in public policy and management. I am known as the Goddess of Grants and I am the president of Best Coast Consulting, Inc.

None of that has anything to do with who I am, but it is all part of my journey.

Upcoming Projects:
Having first published my romantic poetry in the Love Blender Digest, the web’s original love poetry community, in 1997, I certainly have plenty of fodder on love (and loss). It is my intention to do a smaller saddle-stitched print-run with tangible, removable personal elements (ticket stubs, cards, notes) much in the spirit of the 1991 novel: Griffin and Sabine: An Extraordinary Correspondence. Depending on how much I labor over the details of the artistic elements, I have two monographs: (1) “Left Wanting” and (2) “Chapped Lips: Ponderings on Love, Lust and Lip Gloss” prepared for release.

At the moment I am more in love with my new casa in Puerto Vallarta, and living part time in Mexico, than I am with finishing a book.
