About Me

Dear Readers,

I’m glad you stopped by to visit, and I hope you will look up my books.  When I grew up on Staten Island, New York, my favorite past times were visiting the public library and reading books.  I read a lot of different books from mysteries, biographies, historical fiction, to the classics. I studied literature and creative writing in college, and I graduated with a B.A. in English from St. John’s University. For awhile I worked in advertising and public relations, stayed home with my son while he was young, and returned to college to obtain an M.A. in Teaching from Montclair State University, in New Jersey.

While working as a full-time teacher, I continued to pursue my dream of getting my work published. To date, I have had five novels including a western historical, two adult paranormal novels, and two young adult paranormal novels published. I anticipate a few short stories and another young adult novel published in the near future.

My interest in the American West led me to research and then write about the pioneers along the Oregon Trail. That became the basis for my western historical, Wildflowers, published in 2012.

A Kiss Out of Time is my first young adult novel about a teenage ghost hunter who is dealing with a haunting in her grandmother’s antique shop in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. It was published in 2013 by Featherweight Press.

A Dance Out of Time, published in 2015 by Featherweight Press, is a follow-up to A Kiss Out of Time, and is also set in Ocean Grove, New Jersey.

I am a member of the Liberty State Fiction Writers, Romance Writers of America, and the New York City chapter of RWA.
