WELCOME TO MY SITE
When I lived back in the States, I had a drawer full of incomplete manuscripts and never seemed to find the time to pull them together. Since settling in Ballenita, I’ve found time to complete the first book in a trilogy — Too Many Secrets — and the second book Too Many Lies is available now on Amazon. The third and final book of the trilogy will be available in May, 2018.
Many thanks to all of you who have read the books. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy Roxanne’s adventures as much as I did.

Since we moved to Ecuador in 2015, I’ve been blogging about the experience and a few of the older blogs are on this site for you to read if you wish to start from the beginning of our adventures in South America. I’ll be adding more of the past blogs every week.
We spent three months in Cuenca, Ecuador in the Andes mountains before settling in Ballenita, a small town on the Pacific coast. Cuenca, a highlands city of around 600,000 people is a UNESCO World Heritage site–beautiful, cultural and impressive. At an altitude of 8500 ft. it was a unique experience. (Photos of Cuenca accompany my blogs from Nov-Dec 2015 to Jan 2016.)
There are numerous “gringos” from North America who’ve transplanted themselves to Cuenca so the city has many food varieties, household items and other amenities that might not be found elsewhere in the country.
Ecuador is a “developing” country or whatever the current politically correct term may be. It’s tiny for a sovereign nation — about the size of Colorado with around 5.5 million citizens most of whom are always ready with a smile and “buenos dias”. The people of Ecuador are welcoming and friendly to visitors and transplants alike.
