Raised in the beauty and fecundity of waterfalls, fields, and rolling hills of the Finger Lakes region in New York State by a single mother with six children, I developed imagination as well as the determination to live beyond limitation. I wrote poems, skits, and stories beginning around age ten, entertained family and neighbors with these stories, and after high school, I took courses at Elmira College, Roberts Wesleyan College, and eventually graduated from Vermont College with a B.A. with a concentration in Creative Writing. I worked as a paralegal, freelance writer, fitness instructor, and owned a Victorian tea catering business. I married and had a daughter and all the while, I wrote short stories and started a few novels. I have one adult historical novel, two young adult historical novels that have been published. I speak at libraries, conferences, festivals, and schools. I am working on another book about Norah McCabe which takes place during the Civil War in New York City, as well as a historical fiction novel about a Native American woman who lived in the 18th century in New York. I have completed the first draft of a collection of dessert recipes and essays titled, Pavlova in a Hat Box. I'm currently seeking a publisher for this work. I have written two screenplays and a collection of short stories, as well.
