  • About Me

    My life. So far.

    I worked in bookstores most of my adult life because I loved the smell of new books. When I became a cancer survivor in 2003, I discovered I could no longer say, “One day I will ” I learned to say, “Today I am.”

    My essays and stories have appeared in a number of anthologies including the recently published “ Voices of Breast Cancer” as well as “ Something that Matters: Life, Love and Unexpected Adventures in the Middle of the Journey. ” My work has also been published in the Contra Costa Times, The Monthly, Today’s Caregiver, VerbSap, Martha ,, The Canadian Jewish News and The Florentine.

    Why do you write?

    I write to make some sense of the world.
    It seems I have no choice.
    If I'm not writing, I'm not really living.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    John Irving. Lori Moore. Dickens. "The Girls" by Lori Lansens.
    "Birth of Venus" by Sarah Dunnant

    Thank you, Marcie, for commenting on "Pieta." It's one of my own favorites and therefore means a lot to me.
