I started life in the beautiful Hudson Valley region of New York, where a frozen pond became a perfect landscape for my dreams to take root. Through the years, figure skating melted into the desire to become a prima ballerina. I have the broken pointe shoes and calluses to prove it.

Nowadays, I find expression through writing. I launched my writing career with magazine publications after receiving a diploma from Long Ridge Writers’ Group and completing the “Articles that Sell” and “Fiction that Sells” courses through the Christian Writers’ Guild. My devotions have been published in Light from the Word and on CBN.com. I’ve had articles published in The Christian Communicator, Light & Life, P31 Woman and Vista magazines. I’ve also written regularly for the Living Series magazine in the Central Valley of California.

I completed my first novel in January, and I’m waiting to hear back from a coveted list of literary agents. As an assistant to Kathy Ide for close to a year, I mentored with a pioneer in the publishing industry. I’ve been invited to contribute to Castle Gate Press as an Associate Editor and to Splickety Publishing Group as a copy editor. When I’m not busy working part-time at our local library, I find myself taking long walks, spending time with my family, and commiserating with the protagonist for my next novel.
