I grew up surrounded by cans of oil paint and brushes and assorted materials; what with a father and grandfather who drew and painted in the corners of the home front. My first published story appeared in my Senior High School Year Book. My dream to write stories began in junior high, so this published story in my Year Book, opened up my journey.
I live in New York City with my husband Bob. When he isn't watching the Yankees, or working on a brief, we take in the cultural events the city has to offer.
