I enjoy writing inspirational stories about motherhood, couple-hood, and the struggles of daily life.  In today’s world, it’s important to offer an encouraging word whenever possible. 

As a reader, my taste widely varies.  I’m particularly fond of the works of Jane Austen and Edith Wharton. Well-written books that convey the flaws of human nature are somehow comforting.  They certainly make us feel less alone.     

I’m looking forward to sharing more fiction in 2018.  A couple are Austenesque in genre while the other is more of a contemporary fable.    

Links to new Chicken Soup for the Soul books will be posted on my blog just as soon as they’re available where books are sold.      

As a musician, I spent the better part of my twenties/thirties recording and/or touring with artists such as Matthew Sweet, The Wygals, Marti Jones, Don Dixon, Laura Hawthorne, Rob Bartlett, Barry Mitchell, and more recently, Red Words.   

Today, I juggle.  My life consists of raising my son, spending time with my husband, and working part time for a private investment firm in New York City.
