About The Author

Author Bio

 

Although born in New York City, where she spent most of her life, she has lived in six states and has visited most of the others. She earned her MA in English at Northern Arizona University. In one way or another, she has been writing her entire life, whether it was imaginative stories for her friends, or advertising copy for industrial clients.

She never felt her stories were “good enough” to be published. At the persistent urging of her late husband, she finally agreed to seriously edit and revise one of them and take the plunge. Although accepted for publication, the book never made it all the way to print. However, she had the courage to pursue her dream of becoming a published author.

Years later, her persistence paid off.Her traditionally published debut historical novel, Promises, won the 2019 Marie M Irvine Award for Literary Excellence. Her historical fiction, A Lady Newspaperman's Dilemma presently with Woodhall Press and scheduled for a September 2022 release, won the 2021 When Words Count nationwide competition. She's also had short stories published in various anthologies. Her non-fiction essay appeared in the 2021 Chicken Soup for the Soul Blessing of Christmas. 


She lives in Manhattan, New York and is a member of Authors Guild, SCBWI, Women’s National Book Association, and The Historical Novel Society.
