About Me
:

I was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1961. I grew up in Clark, New Jersey which is 30 miles southwest of Newark. At the time, Clark was relatively small compared to Westfield to our west and Rahway to our east. However, we quickly grew being the only way anyone could get to the aforementioned municipalities from the Garden State Parkway using exit 135. 

It's simple, all my life not a day went by that I didn't think about writing. Let me emphasize that, THINK about writing. All through high school and college I kept my desire of writing between me an occasional girl friend and my typewriter.


I worked various jobs, raised a family—almost and wrote my first manuscript at 35. It is still locked in an old Brother Word processor that I believe was damaged sitting our attic here in Florida.


I try to write everyday whether it be a blog, a letter or here on Textnovel. I don’t expect anything from my stories accept the satisfaction of completion. They’re just an opportunity for me to escape for a while. I enjoy writing life not as it is but how I wish it would be.

A single moment in time. I'm sure she doesn't even remember. A busy hallway - loud echoing noises as kids pass. I was there for the fall semester and needed to take one class to graduate early. ...More
