I am a personal essayist, mother and former litigator who lives in downtown Manhattan and an antique Connecticut farmhouse. I love to make crafts, read, practice yoga and connect.
I write because I must. Living with an open heart fuels my creativity. When I capture experience in words, I put a fence around it, organize it, say what it is and what it is not. I can keep it, make it everlasting and pass it on.
