About me

Location New Jersey, United States
Introduction I'm a former newspaper reporter who now writes inspirational poetry and poems to record family history. A four-time finalist and three-time recipient of Editor's Choice Awards in the national Allen Ginsberg contest, I've twice won awards for poetry at the St. Catherine of Bologna Art Exhibition, Ringwood, NJ. My poems have appeared in "The Paterson Literary Review," "Sensations Magazine," "Lips," "The Pillar Monthly" and William W. Francis' book, "Celebrate the Feasts of the Lord." I'm a member of the North Jersey Christian Writer's Group and Ringwood Manor Association of the Arts. I have recently published a 411-page memoir in poetry. It's titled, "Wonderhoods." My chapbooks include "God's Square Mile--Poems about Ocean Grove", "A Pilgrim's Quest--A Poet Visits the Holy Land"; "From My Heart to Yours at Christmas--Cookies & Poems," and "The Widow's Song." A mom and grandmom, I remarried in 2006, and reside in the Garden State with my husband, Robert. Born again believers, we worship at Beth Israel Worship Center, Wayne, where I serve as a deaconess.
