Born in Brooklyn New York. Moved to Rockland County and then the Catskills. Love people and photography; someday I'll combine the two.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have an upscale consignment store called Consignium (I created the name by combining two words-consignment and emporium :-) The store is located in the Catskills yet most of the Designer and Vintage items that fill my racks and shelves are recycled from New York City.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
My first stories weren't written they were created off the cuff and told to my brother at bedtime. Each night my brother would ask to hear the rest of the story, I always complied because I enjoyed telling them as much as my brother enjoyed listening.

I believe the first story I actually put down on paper was a satire that I handed to my journalism teacher, Mr. Frank, in the Bronx. He enjoyed it so much he turned it over to the drama teacher. She in turn produced it as a school play. Some day I'll tell you more.
