About the Author

As a child, I spent a majority of my summers at the Hoboken Public Library (NJ). It was the only place where I could let my imagination go wherever a story would take me. In high school I started writing poems. A year after graduation I got married, and shortly after my first son was born I wrote my first children’s story. By the time my second son was born I decided to take a course on writing for children to polish up on my writing skills and my second children’s story was completed. By then I also had a collection of poems I had written. Then life became very busy and my children’s stories were put to rest inside a folder. However, I continued my love of writing in way of editorials in the local newspapers.
Today, my sons are grown; I now have two grandchildren and life’s experiences have taken me on a new path to reach my dream goal of dusting off and publishing my original long ago written children stories. I have other writings in the making on various other topics as well. Thank you for taking an interest in my children's story. I do hope my imagination takes you and your child/children to another place in time. I also have written other genre Ebooks. If you enjoyed any of my Ebooks, kindly write a review. It would be appreciated.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time by helping care for my grandchildren...mainly driving them to their doctor appointments; driving my granddaughter to and from college and/or work; cooking meals for my family; doing Sudoku puzzles; reading newspapers and magazines; and my favorite pastime, when not writing, is relaxing and listening to music when I need to unwind.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do. In fact I am planning to release my very first story in December of 2019. My second written story is planned for release in November of 2019.
