Life, enjoy the wonder of it all. Work hard, play fair, be true to you. Listen to the sound of the sea as it speaks to your soul.

Background Information

My writing skills have been in the corporate world as a Regional Education Manager/ Seminar Trainer for Wella USA,North Eastern Division. In thefield of Cosmetology, Idesigned benchmark tests, instructional workbooks,composedlesson plansand conducted business building seminars along with demonstration and hands on technique for Wella Salon Systems;all of which remained the property of Wella U.S.A.

Tabling my desire to put onpaper all the stories I've told asamother of three, it is now or never. I give credit to my six grandkids for their inspiration.Thanks to them,Iam now a full timewriter/author.

Story telling I believe, is innate. You either have it or you don't. I believe I do. Getting it down on paper is more difficult for me, as my mind works so much fasterthan my fingers on the keyboard.
I am passionate about preserving our oceans and beaches and my first book, Olivia's Magic Conch is testimony to that.A present day fable with a curve, it can be enjoyed by all ages, howeverI am targetingtweens for good reason.

Living at the shore most of my life I find it infuriatingwhenever I see people who have just spent a delightful day frolickingin the ocean and sunning on the beach, walk away leaving their trash behind.
Myideafor this book is to spread awarenesswith adventure, family interests, comedy, and factual information.Kids today have a hectic, pressure filledschedule and need to read for pleasure to relax. Ergo, a fable filled with fact todraw attentionto a serious problem, while at the same time entertaining and not coming off as a textbook on marine ecology.

Olivia's Magic Conch/ A Mystical, ModernDay Fable educates all,about the wonders of the sea and allwe derive fromit. Equally important,isthe danger itposesto birds, fish, plants,and of course humans when trash becomes deadly.
With each chapter they are so into the adventure and the mystical fantasy which bringsthem there, they do not feel as if this is a lesson at all.They will come away aware of a serious problem and they willspread the word starting at home. Slowly but surely more and more beach trashers will make a deposit in a handy receptacle as they exit the beaches.

Kids rule!Do you remember when either your kids or grandchildren came home with the information that second hand smoke is dangerous. It was better than all the commercials and doctor's threats to get you to quit smoking. They would not let up. I believe this can work the same way......because kids love to lecture their parents when they know what they are talking about.They are savvy, smart and much more outspoken than we were and I am depending on these attributes.

Birth Place
Newark, NJ U.S.A.

While proud of my many achievements, I cannot boast of any writing awards as of yet. I am known in some circles for telling a story with great enthusiasm and excitement.(I was, through merit, awarded a seat on the CEO Advisory Council for Brainstorming at Wella because of my ideas and the way I portray them. Perhaps one day the award will come for the concept and the spreading of the message Olivia's Magic Conch offers in the best form possible....trash free and safe beaches and waters.

Additional Information

I am working on two other books; as yet untitled. Olivia's Magic Conch, is now available on Kindle and through who has just converted my manuscript to an ereader,titled; It all began with...THE unsolved sidesplitting mystery. I am very excited about this novella as I have stepped into a very controversial genre, made it catchy and fun and as a mystery, quite a page turner. This too is available at Amazon, bookbaby and soon most all retailers. $1.99 Pick it up and be trully entertained. Adults only. Hmmmm..... Possible movie? Why not? Who am I I never thought of it? I have chosen the actors I would cast. Negativity blocks success from your doorstep.
