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.
NEWS TO SHARE:
My memoir, Only You, was published in April 2014. It can be purchased at www.amazon.com and through the publisher: www.oaktreepress.com. Locally, the book is available at Bookhampton, Southampton Books, A Tale of Two Sisters Bookshop in Montauk, and at Canio’s and the Romany Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor. It also can be borrowed from many Suffolk County libraries.
You can also look at my Book page on this website.
I am working on a sequel to this memoir. Another one, set in the mid to late 1970s, called Dancing Hussy, may be subtitled: How I Took Up Belly Dancing, Escaped the Suburbs and Started a New Life.
