About

I’ve been writing ever since I was a little girl, unable to control the urge of stories that wanted to percolate through my fingers into the keyboard. Or back then, onto the old Royal typewriter. (Before the TRS-80 even! Wow!)

It’s a learning process and I’m still at it, still writing and learning about craft, style, synopsis, agents, editors and more! I’ve had some moderate success, for which I’m grateful. So far I have three novels in publication, and two more to come in the next year!

In the meantime, I’m keeping my day job as a family law attorney, my night job as parent to three children with special needs, and writing when I can. As the computer age enters its prime, I wanted to expand my writing universe onto the World Wide Web, and here I am!

  1. Nice page, SOM! We dealt with the magnet school issue when we lived in South Florida. Two of the older daughters who just missed the cut for gifted tried the magnets instead, just so they’d get some kind of education at all. I sympathize with the difficulties. Best of luck to your children!

  2. Thank you for the visit also. My brother is special needs, or whatever the words are for that. I’ll keep an eye out your writing about it. Cheers.

  4. Thanks for the comment. This is my first blog site and other than my son, you are my first comment. Good luck with nanowrimo this year. I’m on the Central New Jersey Regional Lounge. I’m known as Word Mage. I’ll be writing a fantasy novel this year. Check out mu author profile page on nano to find out about the book. There’s a direct link from my wordpress site.

  5. Hello,

    I’m Mike from Center’d. As your readers begin planning for the holidays, I thought I’d reach out and share a resource that they might find useful. Center’d has teamed up with Real Simple to create a Thanksgiving planning center with tips, recipes and ready-made plans to help make this turkey day a success.

    You can view the site here: http://www.centerd.com//plans/static/2008/thanksgiving/main/

    You would find more pages on thanksgiving like Potluck Dinner, Recipes and 40 Ways to Simplify Thanksgiving.

    We’d love to hear what you think about Center’d and a mention in your blog would be appreciated if you feel our site would bring value to your readers.

    Thanks and Regards
    Mike

  10. A Farmville neighbor gave a link to your blog on my guestbook–I’m not usually a big blog reader but I browsed here anyways out of curiousity. I’m happy that I did, too! I’m a pretty big writer myself and usually I dislike reading blogs because most authors seem so forced, but you have a great writing vision that makes your blog a nice read. Definitely going to be eagerly awaiting new posts from now onwards! Expect a critical reader c:
