Falling asleep isn't easy for me, so I write myself to sleep, which is how I wrote Bedtime Stories.


Background Information

I've been telling stories since I was a little girl. My parents encouraged this, so did a number of my teachers. I've also been an avid reader my entire life. A number of writers shaped my thinking, but my writing style may have been most influenced by reading German literature--Kafka, Mann, Goethe--in high school. I read thrillers and mysteries to escape. This is a habit that started when I discovered John LeCarre at age 14. I make a habit of visiting bookstores when I travel abroad and buying mysteries by local authors. That's how I discovered Ian Rankin and Ruth Rendell. My favorite living author is John Irving, and my favorite book is A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY.

Accomplishments

I've been a successful freelance writer for nearly 20 years, have been published in a variety of consumer, literary and business publications. Plays I have authored have been produced in New York and Boston and received outstanding rewards.

Additional Information

Great Little Books, LLC, publishers of BEDTIME STORIES: THE SHORT, LONG AND TALL TALES OF A SLEEPWRITER is a member of CLMP: the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses. My story, "London Calling" is featured in MEMORIES OF JOHN LENNON, Harper Collins, November 2005 and Ed Begley, Jr., describes BEDTIME STORIES as "Delicious."
