I was born in New York City and am a graduate of St. John’s University. I loved living in the Big Apple but eventually succumbed to the lure of the West. It turned out to be a very good move. I met my husband, a college professor, in San Francisco, and we now live in the ‘burbs’ only twenty miles south of the city. We take every opportunity to attend plays, visit museums and patronize the ballet. We usually vacation during my husband’s two semester breaks. Our most recent travels have taken us to the Greek Isles, New Zealand and Australia. We’re looking forward in the future to a South American cruise.

 

I knew even as a child that I was captivated by words. When my mother told me to go and play in the backyard (read that as her wanting me ‘out of her hair’) I would make up plays, collect the props, take all the parts and direct the action. I must have been the only director in history to never get a complaint from the cast! I always wrote poetry and, in high school, wrote several cheers that were performed at the basketball games. I acted in school plays and attended The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. I appeared as an extra in films and in a couple of way off-off Broadway productions.

 

I have three published novels. Southern Star which I co-wrote with Phyllis Humphrey. My award winning historical romance Moonlit Desire which was published in March 2012 by Camel Press. My contemporary romance The Very Thought Of You which was published in November 2012 by Crimson Romance. My new romantic suspense novel Forever Mine will be published by Resplendence Publishing on September 24, 2014. I was a finalist in the Windy City Romance Writers Contest and have won the Foster City International Writers Contest in the children’s story division. At the time, I envisioned myself as another Dr. Seuss. However, my heart is in romance writing, and that is what does it for me today.

 

I lead a pretty full life. And seeing my novels published is, indeed, a dream come true.
