I live with my tall, Texan, research scientist husband in New Jersey. We share our home with our actor/artist/photographer son, Maxwell, along with Buckley, an unruly, lovable rescue dog who inspired much of this novel. With a Cornell degree and years in corporate America in HR and volunteering, I have to admit, I wrote constantly. After developing training class materials, writing legal cases, newsletters, grants and even journal articles, it was a pleasant relief to finally have the opportunity to write a full length work of fiction.
I published my first novel "Tom, Dick but not Larry" as an ebook. After the first feeling awash of support, exhileration and I felt a bit vunerable with my pseudonym blown to my large high school class of over 650; something which surprised many since I was know as the nerd, actress and school president all of which is a far cry from writing, "Tom, Dick but not Larry."
After receiving feedback, I have polished the work and, with the help of others, Indie published. The second book is ready for query and the third in formulation, with the help of NJRW and other friends.
I am currently working on the third of a new set of novellas. While my work borders on Chicklit, I always give an HEA or HFN to each piece. What a ride to be writing and getting others to plunge into the arts as well. Such an honor to be part of this group!
