Freelance editor and children's author

Background Information


I’ve been a freelance editor since the mid-1980s and have always dabbled in writing but have never actually put my skills to a test until now.  While freelancing I was also a staff member at Princeton University.  Due to my husband’s employment we relocated to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  I took an early retirement from the University and was determined to use my extra time to write – finally!  The result is my first children's book, A Surprise for Grandmother Rabbit.

My husband and I enjoy the hiking, skiing, golf and the photographic opportunities the Pocono Mountains have to offer.  We have three grown daughters and two granddaughters.  Our granddaughters give me the incentive to write for children.  They are hysterically funny and provide plenty of material for future books.

Travel is a favorite pastime.  We have traveled extensively in Europe, including some Eastern countries.  Our most recent trips were to Hawaii and Arizona.

Our retirement dream is to combine our love of travel with my interest in writing and my husband’s talents in photography.  You’re never too old to have dreams.
