I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing something or the other and finished my first “novel” at the age of eight (five pages, which my mother still has and threatens to sell to the National Enquirer when I make the NYT bestseller list). I have the usual collection of adolescent bad poetry and purple prose, much of which has thankfully disappeared — though I recently unearthed the first romance novel I completed. :: shudders ::
What I Write
These days, I’m focused on a contemporary romance series set in the fictional town of Henry’s Mills, close enough to New York and Boston to enjoy their amenities — but far enough away that urbanites wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle can deem it “rural.” The residents have cannily embraced this designation for tourism purposes.
The first book is in editing, with the second in the series planned for NaNoWriMo 2015. With luck, both will be published in 2016. Of course, that’s not to say something shiny and new won’t come along to catch my attention at any moment…

At this point, I’m sharing my thoughts, knitting projects, general geekiness, and whatever else might fall out of my brain. Current media obsessions are The Flash, Arrow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Blindspot, and comics in general and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in particular.

A few years ago, I came face to face with one of my youthful dreams.read more
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” — John Wooden
I want all the yarn and to knit all the socks, shawls and sweaters that catch my eye. I want that the stories and characters that dance in my head to come to life on the page right now. I really, really want the enclosure for my shower to be delivered so this remodel job will be done.read more
