BORN: July 17,
ST MARY’S HOSPITAL, SYRACUSE, NEW YORK
MARRIED: June 7, 2002
St. Mary’s is now a mental institution in Syracuse, kind of scary, isn’t it? I lived in Mattydale, New York until age 24. I attended North Syracuse Central High School graduating in 1971. The same High School as the actor Richard Gere. In 1977, my father retired and moved us all to Harrisburg, PA. I lost my mother on January 6, 1972 due to cancer and my father on January 29, 1987 due to kidney disease. I have one sister living in Florida with her husband and two daughters. My best friend sister lives in Mattydale, NY with her two children and two grandchildren.
I started writing at the encouragement of my tenth grade English teacher, Mrs. Chappell. Always a verbal storyteller, I avidly wrote for the next six years until a harsh remark by my father caused me to put everything away for over 20 years. In 1999, almost 11 years after his death, I started putting my stories on paper again.
My major in high school was business. For 18 years, I was a full-charge bookkeeper before switching to the Caregiver Field for six years and then back to accounting. I have always been an avid reader of romance, mystery-suspense and sci-fi/horror novels. I recently discovered the box containing my old manuscripts from 25 years ago and a variety of stories waiting to be told.
My hobbies are needlepoint, photography and reading. One of my passions is cooking. My favorite color is purple. One of my dreams finally came true when I met John Oster via the Internet in October 2001. With his love and support, I hope to realize my writing dreams
