Born in Massachusettes under the name Jeanne Pauline Dextraze, moved to San Diego, CA at 8 years of age. At 12, moved to Willimantic, CT. Married and raised 2 children. My Corporate Education & Training Consulting position with General Dynamics Corporation led to my eventual return to San Diego, CA where I was employed by Space Systems. Due to the later sale of my division to Lockheed Martin, I relocated to Littleton, CO and eventually transfered to Santa Clara, CA. I am now a retired grandmother of 6, who enjoys writing, music, ocean kayaking, swimming and travelling the world. more »
