I’ve been blogging since 2006, and in 2011 I launched the Women’s Fiction Writers blog, named a Best Website For Writers by Writer’s Digest in 2015, 2016, and now again in 2017. I am a freelance fiction editor and book coach helping writers make their books the best they can be. I’ve published articles and essays in dozens of magazines and newspapers in print and online.
My novels have been published by St. Martin’s Griffin and include Left to Chance (November 2017), The Good Neighbor, and The Glass Wives. They are, in fact, women’s fiction. I don’t have a problem with that label. I embrace it.
I was born and raised in Philadelphia and am a graduate of Temple University with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism. I’ve lived in Hershey, PA, Maplewood, NJ, Cleveland, OH, Tucson, AZ, and Chicago, IL (twice). After leaving Philadelphia in 1990, I moved back at the end of 2016, and now, with my twelve-year-old shepherd mix, Mitzi, I live fifteen minutes from where I grew up. My son and daughter are in their twenties, and the most amazing grown-ups I know.
Thanks for stopping by!
