Sunny southern California has been home for the past 30 years, originally from the U.S. east coast, with moves to Europe, Asia, and the northwest. As an older student and Mom, I graduated from WSU (Go Cougs) in Pullman, WA, then left for graduate school in San Diego, CA. My heart is in Washington State where sons and their growing families live, two great-grandbabies born in August 2017, and another born February 2020. My heart is shared in the San Diego sunshine with Robert and our two doggies, Sammy and Charley.
In 2013, I retired as a nurse practitioner and became a writer, copyeditor, co-author, and blogger. From the blog’s beginning in 2014, Before Sundown has been honored with awards, and blog tours. I’m ever grateful, and appreciative of dedicated worldwide followers who like, comment, share and tweet posts. http://cerobinsonauthor.com
In 2020, I finished writing Sunset Inn, wish you were here, a historical fiction book based on real and made-up events and people. The book launch will be summer or fall 2020. Made up characters are Erik Herrmann and Wilson Lee. Erik’s a Jewish cardiac doctor, the main character Elizabeth’s heartthrob. Wilson’s a musician, Elizabeth’s guitar teacher, that she faces an entanglement with. Erik’s the biggest help in Elizabeth’s search to uncover her famous grandfather’s secret life in Germany. With the historical theme, the story needed a dream come true, sparked up nurse/doctor romance, and a side love connection to music.
I’m old as dirt, born in 1939, and plan to hit the 100-year mark.
I love whimsy and humor, something I try to interject into blog posts and writing.
I modeled for an Illustrator Photographer as a teenager, and was featured on east coast billboards; Give Life a Lift in West Palm Beach – Tropical Florida’s First Resort. I had jet-black hair and violet eyes, just like Elizabeth Taylor.
I published poetry years ago, and that led me to write “free rein for the brain” fiction.
I attended the same university as my sons, and at the same time. I also knew their girlfriends there (now wives). I was an honorary Frat Mom, and a designated driver.
I lived in Italy, Greece and Japan (5 years in each country). The highlight, traveling and skiing the Matterhorn (Italian Alps), and ski slopes in France, Austria and Switzerland.
I was a tech challenged blogger at the beginning in 2014, and I “learned by fire” how to put the WordPress site together and keep it “blazing” with published posts, and The Sunrise and Sunset Photo Gallery.
