I began writing at the age of 12 to pass the time during late night babysitting jobs. When the hours flew by and the pages filled with highly imaginative stories, I invested in spiral binders. When I entered high school I wrote humorous skits for the high school talent shows.
Growing up outside of New York City, I attended many Broadway plays and musicals that served to stimulate my imagination. While attaining my Journalism degree at Marshall University I received numerous writing awards. I have been published in Writer’s Digest magazine and had an in-depth article in Delaware Beach Life magazine. I am affiliated with a variety of writers groups and continue to be a featured HuffPost Blogger. My historical romance, Sisters Inn, has received five star reviews and is a popular book club read. I am currently working on writing novellas following the success of, Sight Unseen In the City, the first in my New York Through the Times Series. My children’s chapter books, The Villa Dog (an Epic Award and a Main Line Today staff pick) , The Old Fortress Dog and The Kona Dog (all third grade book club reads), have been embraced by children, parents and the educational community. My fourth children’s chapter book, The Valley Forge Dog, a historical fiction, was recently released and is receiving five star reviews.
I enjoy bicycle riding, cooking, reading, music, photography, snorkeling, walks with my canine kids, and travel. Sharing my joy of writing with young students and encouraging them to put their imaginative stories on paper gives me great satisfaction. I reside with my family outside of Philadelphia, PA in Chester County.
