I worked in sales and the beauty business for 20 years before reinventing myself as a freelance writer and college student. After selling an essay for $35, I wrote columns and articles for the Pittsburgh Tribune Review from 1991 till 2010. I published pieces in magazines and online writing sites. My fiction languishes in musty folders,because I'm endlessly fascinated by the world beyond the window by my desk, and also because I'm a procrastinator when not under deadline. I live in the USA, in rural South Central Pa, but am a Maryland native. Bears, deer,and coyotes often visit. My husband,our dog and cat,spend time here with me.
