Welcome to my little corner of the webworld

If this is your first visit to my site, thank you for popping in.
And if you’ve been here before, yes, you’re in the right place. I did a little updating. Hope you like it.

I’m a brand new author and super-excited to have my first book published with The Wild Rose Press. It was released December 3, 2014, in both paperback and e-book formats, and is available online.

Bio-basics:
With my terrible penmanship, writing a novel was never my lifelong dream. However, as a little girl, I loved playing with my mother’s old typewriter, and I did pretty good in typing class in high school. So, when I grew up, I got a job in NYC, where I did a lot of typing. And I spent a lot of hours commuting via the Long Island Railroad. To pass the time, I read a lot of books. All sorts of books. Syfy. Horror. Women’s Fiction.


But I quickly realized romance was my favorite…the steamier the better!!

All that reading gave me the big idea to write my own story, putting my overactive imagination and suspicious mind to work, playing out the possibilities of hypothetical situations. One day, in 1999, I came home from work, sat in front a blank document on my computer, and attempted to write my first novel. It was awful, but that didn’t stop me from writing……

I spent years hobby-writing, researching how to write, and studying the romance genre.

In 2011, I joined the Romance Writers of America and the local chapter of Long Island Romance Writers, where I met like-minded writers at all levels of experience. At the annual LIRW Luncheon in May 2014, I pitched my story to the Editor-in-Chief of The Wild Rose Press, and she invited me to send the first three chapters of my completed manuscript. After that, the Senior Editor of the Champagne Line requested the whole thing. By August, I was offered a contract. It happened so fast ~ I was, and still am, overwhelmed and overjoyed that Sleeping with Santa was released Christmas 2014!!

In between family-life and everything else, I’m on to my next work in progress, which you can find under the In the Works tab of this site. Meanwhile, please keep in touch, join my newsletter, find me on FacebookTwitter, and a bunch of other places on the internet. Check out my blog and some pics of my pup. And if you’ve enjoyed reading Sleeping with Santa, please leave a review on Goodreads and Amazon, or wherever you purchased the book.

Thank you for reading! I appreciate your support!!
