I lived most of my life in Clifton, New Jersey and recently moved to South Jersey. My daughter and I love the shore life and all the beautiful nature it abounds.
I was an accountant for over twenty years and when my daughter was only three, decided to switch gears and do something I've always wanted to do; write and illustrate children's books. My recent career shift has brought me the time I wanted to have with my beautiful daughter.
I have recently finished and published a non-fiction book, "The First Time Without You" which is about the sudden loss of my husband. I am currently working on more non-fiction books.
A one-year journal maintained after my husband's death, "The First Time Without You". I chose to share my journal in the hopes of helping others going through the same grieving process. My emotions were recorded as I was going through the horrific process and I felt the need to share these emotions with others going through the loss of a loved one. It also helped me through the healing process.

This is a story about a foreign adoption of a beautiful baby who created a family full of love. It is told and illustrated through the eyes of a child.

A whimsical cat-narrated auto-biography told in poetry form, "Memoirs of a Cat". An interpretation is also told through the eyes of the humans. It is a funny story about a cat who believes she is queen of the home and learns to find companionship with a kitten when the people decide to add to their family.
