I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy.
I began my career in writing on a picturesque day in a quaint Connecticut town. An only child, studious who loved to read, often my afternoons were spent home leafing through dusty volumes passed down from my grandfather. Or I could be found in the local library, covertly reading all the books I'd been warned against such as Wifey by Blume or Go Ask Alice, salacious writing perfect for the budding adolescent. Another favored reading series were the Sweet Valley High books--remember those? And on that aforementioned 'picturesque day' I tried my hand creating my own. It was a piece of junk. I still have it, and it was not until college that I tried my hand at writing again. At Wellesley I focused on short stories and poetry receiving my BA. In Massachusetts I featured at several poetry venues such as: Stone Soup, Best Sellers, A Tapestry of Voices, Sherman Café and Walden Poetry Series and published poetry in Main Street Rag, Poesy, Bellowing Ark, The Alewife, The Wilderness House Literary Review, Ibbetson Street Press, Spoonful: A Gathering of Stone Soup Poets, MoJo! The Maps One Journal, Spare Change, as well as others.
Interested in human nature I tend to write about the blended qualities we all contain within us.
Though I grew up in Connecticut, I've lived in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Mississippi and most recently Florida where I currently reside. Aside from a love of writing and reading, I enjoy spending as much time with my son, watching movies when able, specifically 1970s horror films (what can I say, I was raised on them), dancing, swimming, listening to music, traveling, animals, food, beauty and everything else fabulous. Other things dear to my heart are the efforts of Congo Action Now (CAN) an organization determined to stop the brutal use of rape in the DRC war.
