Privacy Policy

Updated 4-04-23

Your privacy and security are important to me. I want you to feel safe and at ease while cruising my web site so I’ve put security measures in place to protect you and my site.

I use SSL (encryption) to safeguard your data as it moves to and from my web site, and solid, up-to-date security software, Wordfence, to protect this site and your data.

I use CleanTalk as an anti-spam filter, so it will collect the following information: your name, e-mail, and IP address.

The only information I store on is information that you share freely.


I would love to hear what you have to say and welcome your comments. Please feel free to post them for me to read. The info collected includes your name, e-mail address, IP address, web address, and your comments. If you wish to have your comments removed, please send me a note through the contact form on this site and I’ll remove them. CleanTalk will check your comments to ensure your address is correct and you’re not a spammer.

Newsletter & E-mails:

I am developing an author newsletter, so I can let you know what’s up with me and what I’m doing in my world. Current writing projects, travel destinations, hobbies, photos, and places I’ll be will be featured in it. If you sign up to receive my newsletter, you are allowing me to collect your name and e-mail address for when it is released. CleanTalk will verify that your e-mail address is correct. You can click unsubscribe at any time to be removed.

I will only send you e-mails if you’ve signed up to receive them. If you want to stop receiving e-mails from me, you can cancel your subscription by clicking on the link in the footer of any email I send you.

Website Tracking:

My hosting company will give me general information about who comes to this site. This info cannot be traced back to any individual. Google and other search engines trace website visitors too, but if you want to avoid this, you can use a private browser window. I’m using Google Analytics too to find our why visitors to my site are there. If you don’t want me to know that, think about using that private browser window listed above.


A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. It ensures the integrity of the registration process and personalizes your time on my site. You can accept or decline cookies, but declining them may not enable you to get the full experience of this website.

A Note to International Users:

My website is hosted in the U.S. If you are accessing it from another country, please know you are consenting to the transfer of your information to the U.S. for processing and maintenance. Also, U.S. laws apply for any matter about this site.

Changes to This Statement:

At times I’ll have to update this and will do so by changing the top of the page with the most recent edit date.
