I have been writing for as long as I can remember. The first book I ever wrote is called The Bunny and The Eggs. This character driven tale is about the Easter Bunny, his hard work, and his love for the holiday. I bound it with masking tape and my mother wrote The End in cursive. To me that was exactly how a real book was supposed to look!
I grew up in Tenafly, NJ, attending Ralph S. Maugham School, Tenafly Middle School and Tenafly High School. I graduated in 1983 and went on to Villanova, but not before my high school guidance counselor looked at my grades and said, “Boy, I thought you were smarter than that.” At the tender age of 16 I was a bit devastated. I have since learned that we all excel at different things and at different times. Academically, I blossomed in college. I have been fortunate enough to pursue what I love—writing. When you find the thing you are passionate about, do it. If you are lucky enough to make a career out of it, that is success.
I am a New Jersey native—a Jersey Girl all the way. My husband Brian and I call the sandy beaches of the Jersey Shore home. We have three grown, city-dwelling daughters, Katie, Lindsay, and Maggie, as well as my faithful writing companion, a West Highland White Terrier named Duke. Life is busy. Life is full. Life is good.
Live, laugh, love. And for me, write.
