I’ve loved books and writing all my life. In early elementary school, my first best friend, Karen, and I eagerly awaited the Book Mobile’s weekly visit to our neighborhood. By the time I reached junior high school, I’d read many of the classics. Many remain my favorite books to this day. In high school, I began writing original short stories and poetry.
For me, becoming a writer was inevitable. Recently, I’ve added personal essays and a complete novel to my repertoire. In late 2017, I started writing another novel.
I’m a member of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs, and the James River Writers. JRW is located in Richmond VA, near my home. When I’m not writing or working my day job, I enjoy watching classic television programs, listening to music, or reading with my beloved tortie, Hannah, nearby.
Favorite Novels: To Kill a Mockingbird, Rebecca, East of Eden, Wuthering Heights, Charlotte’s Web, Black Beauty, Lord of the Flies, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and The Accidental Tourist.
Favorite Writers: The authors who wrote my favorite novels, plus Anne Patchett, Amy Tan, J. R. R. Tolkien, Eudora Welty, Robert Frost and Emily Dickenson.
