Valerie is a native of San Francisco who was named in honor of Valentine's Day (for which she is eternally grateful -- a day earlier or later and her name would have been Priscilla) and raised in Greenbrae until age 13, when the family packed up and moved to Sebastopol. A self-taught reader at 3, Valerie picked up a natural talent for good spelling before she actually knew what that was, and was blessed a mom who corrected all grammatical errors.



Debora's biography was included in the White House Millennium Time Capsule.
