Looking back I can see that I've always had a love affair with creativity. I began fine art training at age 11 and have since worked in many mediums including pastel, oil, watercolor and acrylic painting, clay, plaster of Paris, textiles, wood and natural fibers. With early training in voice and jazz dance, I've appeared in newsprint, theater, on camera, on stage and runway and held responsibilities including professional photography, location assistant, set design, property, casting, and costume design and execution. I also hold a B.A.S. in Fashion Design, twice receiving a Juice Award for fresh ideas in fashion, so you may see some writings here which talk about the fashion industry. I am a shameless health and nutrition advocate.

I've always written poetry and recently completed my second novel as a sequel to the romantic thriller, Creekwood. As a published writer, with two book length works of fiction and more than 50 poems and short stories, I hope to inspire and help you do your best work and create the book you've always wanted to write.

A New Jersey native, I currently reside in Hendersonville, TN, U.S.A., which is also the setting for Creekwood and Creekwood 2.
