|Introduction||When I created my first blog in 2008, I had no idea about the incredible journey that would lead me to this wonderful blogosphere that is a glorious community of people who love books. I came here to celebrate the novels I wrote, all available on Amazon.com. Novels that feature some of my real-life experiences as a social worker for more than three decades. "An Accidental Life," "Embrace the Whirlwind," "Chasing Stardust," "Miles to Go," and "Web of Tyranny" all describe and focus on that incarnation of my life. Nowadays, while marketing my books and writing my next one, I'm luxuriating in the blogging world. With eleven blogs to maintain, call me crazy, but I love it! I hope you'll join me on this journey.|
|Interests||Reading, writing, collecting, traveling and spending time with children and grandchildren.|
|Favorite Movies||Love suspense, family drama, romantic comedies, and psychological thrillers. Some of my favorites are: "Mr. Brooks, " "Match Point, " and the oldie "Fatal Attraction." My romantic favorites include "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless in Seattle." I was also captivated by the dramatic movies "House of Sand and Fog" and "Little Children."|
|Favorite Music||Country, soft rock and jazz.|
|Favorite Books||I am a fan of books by Janet Fitch, such as "White Oleander" and "Paint it Black." Barbara Delinsky's "Family Tree" is another favorite, as are books by Marge Piercy. Sheer Abandon: A Novel by Penny Vincenzi; Leap!: What Will We Do with the Rest of Our Lives? by Sara Davidson; and Internal Combustion: The Story of a Marriage and a Murder in the Motor City by Joyce Maynard, are other chosen books.|
