I am a wife, a mother, a friend, a cooker, a cleaner, a referee, a washer and folder of clothes, a bathroom scrubber, a bed maker, a boo boo kisser, a homework checker, a rug vacuumer, an encourager, a cheeky petter, a dog bather, a finder of all things lost, a video gamer player, a reader, a dreamer, a music lover, a sewer, a painter, a photographer and I am a writer.
I grew up on Long Island but fell in love with the mountains and trees of Northeastern PA, which is where I now live with my husband, two daughters, a smelly rat terrier and a cockatiel. As a girl, I could often be found with my nose in a fantasy book, but as I got older, I came to appreciate other genres. Being a writer was never a dream of mine, in fact, I hated writing all through my school years. (I wanted to be an illustrator.) But, as the saying goes, people make plans and God laughs! Just out of college, I had a dream… From that moment on, my life has been plagued with characters, plots, scenes, sketches, imaginary conversations and outlined stories.
When I’m not writing, I am either hanging with my family or working as my alter-ego, Ban Sidhe, painting, modifying or sewing for Ball Jointed Dolls. (Something else I hated when I was younger)
