About Me.



After spending my twenties working in publishing in Manhatttan,  with a year off in Paris, I married and moved to Vermont, where I established a  freelance writing and editing business.  I wrote over twenty non-fiction  books for Chelsea House Publishers in New York. I also developed a fiction writing class called Closet Writers Ink, and have been teaching writing workshops for a decade.  After a few years of inspiring others, I decided it was time to follow my own advice. 

I am a late-bloomer fiction writer, and love sharing this passion with others, both through my writing and through teaching.

I have the best agent in the world--Kimberly Cameron in San Francisco. I now have three novels published by Poisoned Pen Press. The third, BURGUNDY: Twisted Roots, was publshed in September of 2015. I have another novel going to Kimberly that will be labeled mainstream fictionI like to blog about the writing life, so please tap "Blog" to learn about the rooms where I have created my books.

This photo was taken in Paris a few years ago. Below is the photo I have been using for publicity. I was fortunate to have been given a magnficient place to write by Turkey Land Cove Foundation on Martha's Vineyard a few years ago, and founder Kitty Burke invited the 100 women who had stayed there a weekend at the Biltmore Hotel in Providence, R.I.  A great photographer and woman, Kathy (KTPhoto), photographed each of us.
