Biography: I am a New Englander born and bred, as well as a self-professed “Gym Rat” and chocoholic. Writing has been a creative outlet for me since junior high school, starting with very bad poetry and more recently, fairly good (in my humble opinion) song lyrics. I have a notebook full in various stages of completion, and if I ever become adept enough at piano, which is doubtful, I hope to one day write some songs (it’s on the Bucket List). FYI, if there are any musicians reading this looking for lyrics, I would love to collaborate. I have been a Hospice companion volunteer since 2005 and intend to someday write about my life-altering relationships with people at the end stage of life and their families. After Semi-retiring in 2012, I found myself with the discretionary time required to write novels, and doing so has opened up an exciting new world for me. Writing a novel has always been in the corner recess of my mind as a “Someday.” Well, “Someday” has arrived. I am awed and astounded by the self-fulfillment this process has afforded me. Like any author, I wistfully dream of making the best sellers’ list one day, but if I never make a dollar from my writing, this will still stand out as one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I have just uploaded a sample of my third book, Music of Souls~~Eternity's Opus, which I have dedicated to all the wonderful readers, many on Public Bookshelf, who have commented on Music of Souls and asked for a sequel. I wish I could give you each a hug and personally express how much inspiration I derive from your support.
