Aground in Los Angeles


We left a housboat in Minnesota to live in a camper in California.  He’s (Andrew Melby) a film-maker, I’m an actress and writer.  Adorable, right? 

Along with our dog and two cats we’re livin’ the dream… in a trailer park. 

The subjects here may range from personal to professional to historical.  I welcome your feedback and thank you for your interest.
