About Me

My background

A former consultant and author for teachers in the field of early childhood education,

My writing roots


I am indebted to the wonderful teachers at the Writers' Retreat at Interlochen Center for the Arts. They have launched me into the fiction writing life and provided support and guidance along the way. I continue to seek out opportunities to refine my craft and have been accepted into the Novel Retreat at Vermont College for Fine Arts in May of 2018. 

I am deeply grateful to my writing friends

 for all of their encouragement.
