I still remember how I felt the day I discovered I could read well enough on my own to understand an entire chapter of Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder -- electrified and giddy with this new power that let me enter a different world all by myself, whenever I wanted.
I went on to adore English classes in high school, major in English in college, (where I wrote abysmal short stories for a creative writing class), work in libraries during both high school and college, and earn a graduate degree in library science.

Over the years I’ve had several articles published in local magazines and newspapers. Although my fiction hasn’t been published yet, I’m fairly confident it’s improved since my undergrad efforts.
I have a novel in progress and another one eager for me to begin writing it, but I've had to make my fiction writing less of a priority recently while I help care for my elderly mom in addition to holding down a full-time job.
I’ve lived my entire life in central New York except for the four years I attended college in Massachusetts.
