Hi there. I’m flattered you stopped by! I’m no one of consequence, really – just a bluff busting, felt worshiping, fired up female sharing her stories with the world. I’m one of Santa Barbara’s most well known scooter girls and a familiar face in the Chumash Casino poker room. A few people know me as “the candle lady” or the poet who refuses to quit rhyming. Yet, whether I’m working at one of my many money gigs, taking time to play, researching poker history, or writing up my latest whim of inspiration, I know I’m someone worth knowing and one day I’ll have the publishing credits to prove it. Until then, I have this blog.
If you are inclined help bolster my reputation, follow me on Twitter and Facebook. I believe I’m one of those gamblers who Doyle Brunson says, “are like zircon: They may lack certain properties considered genuine and endearing, but that doesn’t mean they are without sparkle.”
If you long to become more like me, check out some of my favorite books – i.e. Cowboys Full: The History of Poker, The Godfather of Poker, Roll the Bones: The History of Gambling, The Cincinnati Kid, Last Call, Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates, and Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life.
