I’ve been a writer since my childhood in Massapequa, NY, causing a sensation and finding a strong — albeit captive — fan base among my immediate family at the dinner table. Since then, I’ve lived in Cortland, NY, Manhattan, Syracuse, Buffalo, and for the last 30 years, Baltimore. I’ve worked as a teacher, editorial director, and freelancer. I was a wife; I am a mother, grandmother, godmother, aunt, cousin, and friend. I’m sometimes an inspired cook and always a bad singer. I’m capable of false starts and thinking before I leap, hard landings, a good story, and a laugh you can hear from a block away.
I’ve recently completed a memoir, I Haven’t Got All Day. I’m represented by literary agent Maryann Karinch of The Rudy Agency.
