I was born in Southern California and lived there for 33 years. I moved to the French Quarter of New Orleans and lived there for over a dozen years. I owned and operated a body piercing specialty studio, Rings of Desire, Inc., which closed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. My husband and I relocated to the Yucatan in Mexico and we've lived here for over 3 years. I wrote The Piercing Bible--The Definitive Guide to Safe Body Piercing, the first book in the English language to delve deeply into the subject.
My husband and I live a very healthy lifestyle, which includes fresh, clean food, regular exercise, and avoiding excessive stress.
