Martina Reaves grew up in a Navy family and lived in thirty-four places before she finally settled in her current home in Berkeley with her wife, Tanya, and their son, Cooper, who now lives in Oakland. She considers living in one place for over thirty years a major accomplishment. A lawyer who hated practicing law, Martina became a mediator in 1986 and worked with divorcing couples and neighbors with disputes. In 2007, she dropped writing legal documents and began writing fiction and memoir and have been at it ever since. On the personal side, Martina loves creating serenity in the couple's home, gardening, reading, going to plays, and that the music venue Freight and Salvage is five minutes from their house. I'm Still Here is Martina's first book, published by She Writes Press. It is that rare book that does make you laugh and cry, in all the right places. Another, flash memoir entitled Ebb and Flow is to follow. For excerpts, please see the author's website: www.martinareaves.com.
