Author and Poet

Background Information

I began writing poetry at age seven, finished my first novel at thirteen.

I received a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and worked for Princeton University Press for many years, first as the promotion design manager and later as Assistant Manager of the book design department. There, I learned a great deal about editing, design, and production, which was utilized when I became a freelancer to university press publishers and museums. However, writing has always been my passion so it is with great pleasure that I can now devote all of my time and energy to writing novels, stories, and poems.

Birth Place
Highlands, NJ USA

My work has been nominated for two Pushcart Prizes, Best of the Net, Best of the Web, and has three times been selected as "story of the week" by "Short Story America." Stories have been accepted in over 35 literary journals and several anthologies. "Fog and Other Stories" was shortlisted for a UK Saboteur Award and "Jenny Kidd" was nominated for an ALA award.

Additional Information

I am the author of "The Outcast Oracle" and a slightly revised edition of "Fog and Other Stories," both published by Humanist Press in Fall 2013."Jenny Kidd," a psychological suspense novel, was issued by Vagabondage Press in 2012. Two full-length poetry collections, "Beneath the Lion's Paw" and "Snow, Shadows, a Stranger" as well as a chapbook, "The Sea & Beyond,"are available from the poet or FootHills Publishing.
