I’ve loved writing poetry and short stories since childhood. My first chapbook Flashes of Fiction Poetry & Prose was published by a small Press in the early 2000s (no longer in print). After retiring from the healthcare insurance industry after thirty years, I’m enjoying a second career in life writing poetry, fiction, memoir, and essays. Second Act Writings: An Eclectic Poetry & Prose Collection was published in January 2019 (see here. ) A short story collection, Papier-mâché Dreams: Eclectic Flash & Short Fiction was published in May 2019 (see here.) The ebook version is available on various online stores here. I established Second Acts Press which released its first book, Second Act Writings Volume 2: Poems on Life, Love, & Other Musings in the summer of 2019: the ebook version is available at various online retailers here. The paperback is available on Amazon (here). A memoir, His Brave Heart: My Husband’s Journey from LVAD to Heart Transplant was published in late December 2019 (available here). December 2020 ended with my third published volume of poetry, Pandemic Inspired Poetry: Second Act Writings Volume 3 (available here). In January of 2021, I released a memoir: I Should Write Some of This Down: My Pandemic-Inspired Reflections in late 2020 (available here). I’m currently working on two full length novels: a young adult mystery and a cozy mystery.
I reside in the Southeast United States where I spend time writing and enjoying my family.
