My first novel, The Song of an Emerald Dove, was published in August 2005 -- and has gone into its second printing. In February 2007 it won the COVR (Coalition of Visionary Resources) People's Choice Award for Best Book at the INATS (International New Age Trade Show) East in Orlando FL.
I have written for the fun of it forever, but my degrees are in education (science) and public administration.
I have written press releases, advertising copy, manuals and instructions, policy and procedure materials, correspondence, and speeches for such employers as the State of NJ and Crabtree and Evelyn, Ltd.! And I have had a few articles and poems published in the alternative press.
I live in the NJ Pine Barrens near where I was born -- shortly before the Normandy Invasion. My roomies are some tropical fish, two juvenile "upland bearded dragons," a pair of exotic finches and about ninety tropical plants. I am the chairperson of my high school class's reunion committee. Our mascot was a dragon. That's my cover story for purchasing the dragons, and I'm stickin' to it!
