Basics

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.
