As a writer, a teacher, and as an editor, I am hoping to connect with kindred spirits through this website. It’s also my way to stay in touch with my students, past and present, and with writing colleagues, agents and editors. I want to know what you are doing, what you are writing and publishing, and wish to keep you informed of my own doings.


My memoir, Only You, was published as a second edition in April 2019 by Brown Posey Press, an imprint of Sunbury Press. The book was originally published in April 2014 by Oak Tree Press.

You can see my Book page on this website.

My novel, Three Rooms, Shared Bath: a Landlady in the Hamptons, was published by Sunbury Press in July 2021.
