At the age of 28, I moved from my hometown of New York City in search of new experiences.

I crossed the big pond and landed in Heathrow in July 1989. I've been in the United Kingdom ever since. I’m married to a lovely Englishman and have three nearly-grown children.

My interests include needlework, travel, photography, reading and writing.

I don't have a favourite genre. I write whatever strikes my fancy. However, I do try to put a twist in the tale when I can to keep things interesting.
