I became a Journalist for 25 years, inspired by tragedy in my life. I wrote until a book was born, a long labor of love.

Background Information

Due to extenuating circumstances in my life, like a whacky mom and messy divorce, I eloped at the age of seventeen, with my high school sweetheart, repacing all my dreams with different ones. We raised six kids and had wonderfully comical lives. Butch was the regimental "Sound of Music' dad, whistling for his kids, while I was the nurturer. We crossed country twice, lived in a real haunted house and were living a wonderful life, if not wealthy monetarily, rich in love. A tragic accident happened, changing our lives forever. And so began the book, . . .AND THE WHIPPOORWILL SANG, written as a catharsis for my grief and salvation for my sanity, as we learned to weep . . .to laugh . . .to grieve . . .to dance.

Birth Place
Fayettesville, NC United States

Twenty-five years as a staff writer, penning commentary, news, analysis and interviews for the prestigious, award-winning bi-weekly newspaper, The Staten Island Register. Over twenty years of writing for the large local newspaper, The Staten Island Advance, which published all my slice of life humor, pathos and commentary--serving a community of 4-500,000 people. I wrote my first horror story and was published first time out in The Princeton Womens' Magazine of Princeton, NJ. The first short story of our lives was published first time out too, in Victimology: an International Journal. I wrote short stories for The Bronxville Womens' Magazine, in Bronxville, NY and also for Writer Digest School Newletters. I had many stories published in Skyline Magazine both in e-zine and print, along with poems in their sister magazines and won several contests on line. . . .AND THE WHIPOORWILL SANG, a memoir, is my first book, released on September2, 2007. I am curently writing two children's books and co-writing a sci-fi YA fiction with my talented 11 year-old grandson.
I recently got the MADD endorsement for my book, and at least 13 High School libraries in three major cities are ordering the book for their shelves--one requesting my book as required reading for their students, from 15 yrs and up. I've hosted a few aol chats and guested on many more, had several book signings, including Borders and one coming up in April at Barnes&Noble, plus a book fair at the Staten Island Technical School. My next and latest promo is a blog radio "Interview with Regan," on February 24, 2008 at 3:00 est.

Additional Information

I've been offered several speaking engagements to schools and Drunk driving conferences. As soon as I overcome my fear of public speaking I may do that. I was told to picture the audience naked andI tried that--now I have a fear of naked people!! I recently received the Silver NestaCBC award for writing that changes the world and makes it a better place. As of April, 2013, two of my horror short stories were published in a great horror anthology called, "The Speed of Dark."
