Bio:

I started writing poetry in 1994 when I went to college at age 40. I won an award for a poem I submitted to our campus literary journal, Thoughts Beyond Insanity. That encouraged me to continue and I have not stopped since. I have been published twice in the literary journal, Harrisburg Review. I also had work published in The Villager, a magazine published by a women's club in Bronxville, NY. There are a few others I have lost track of over time.
My prose efforts include several years of writing Adventures In Antiquing which discusses the buying and selling of antiques which was a trade I practiced as an antidote to my short and unsatisfactory stint as a paralegal. I have another blog, Seaward Adventures, which is about ”Wind, Water and Sailing as Soulcraft .”
Currently, I work for a manufacturer of luxury yachts. My small contribution to building boats for billionaires is fashioning cabinet parts from expensive hardwoods. My night-work involves poetry to keep myself only just as sane as I need to be while writing a historical novel set in the American Civil War.
