aney B, dreamer first class, chronicler of the mad, the bad, the magical and the beautiful...here's to the adventure!


Background Information

I have always had two professions, and the one feeds the other. I am a clinical social worker and spend my days wandering around inside the heads of the psychologically and socially disturbed, in hospitals, schools, and jails. Needless to say, such travels offer a wealth of points of view and much material for writing.

I put myself through graduate school by writing features for The Boston Tab in its early days. For some reason I will never understand, when I got my degree I left journalism and actually went into social work. But I can't complain, I have done the work of the angels and given my writing craft almost more than it can handle.

I am just doing the final edits on my first novel, Jane of the Jungle, concerning a widowed nurse who falls on hard times and hits the road with a facelift and a nine millimeter. She enters a life of crime and finds madcap adventure, magical events, talking foxes, telepathic tigers, and of course, true love. I hope to self publish it as a start, eventually have it picked up by a traditional publisher.

Influences: Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Shakespeare, and my patients.
