Born on 09.09.56 in Ukiah, California ~ grew up in Boonville, California ~ 2.5 hours north of San Francisco on the Mendocino coast. It's home to the language of Boontling, the Moonies, murderer Leonard Lake, where kidnapped child Steven Stayner was housed for years, and my 6th grade school teacher was Rev Jim Jones of the Guyana suicide tragedy. I graduated Anderson Valley High at the age of 17 in 1974, earned my AA degree in 3 semesters, then attended UC Santa Barbara in 1976 ~ 1978. I have followed the career of actress-entertainer Ann-Margret since I was 7 years old, after seeing her in the Elvis Presley film "Viva Las Vegas". I have a massive memorabilia collection on her, and have now seen her perform live in concert more than 100 times... from Las Vegas to Lake Tahoe & Reno, from San Francisco to the front row at Radio City Music Hall for all 6 shows of her engagement in 1991. In 1998, they invited my partner and I to their home in Beverly Hills for lunch. We were also invited by her & her husband, the late actor & producer Roger Smith, to spend a week with them as she toured in the musical "The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas" in 2001. She is a true blessing in my life. I'm now retired after 35 years in banking. My partner of 22+ years & I recently bought a new home in the North Natomas area of Sacramento, which we share with our fur babies Molly & Brody...both miniature dapple Dachshunds.
