Profile Information

Who I am:
I was raised in the northeastern United States, in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and resided in a half-dozen homes or towns throughout my growing up years. My father was a reverend with a flourishing career, moving the family to various parishes as his calling dictated, which I view in a positive light as I was exposed to different communities and lifestyles. After graduating from high school at the age of seventeen, I shook off my less worldly roots when I moved with my father to Massachusetts, a seemingly more sophisticated and progressive state. It was there that I embarked on a learning journey, thrilled at living so close to the sea in the artsy and historic fishing village of Gloucester, the hex signs and covered bridges soon a fond memory.

Thrilled to begin college in New England, I jumped in with both feet and managed to excel in biological and psychological studies, despite majoring in dating. Throughout my school years, I dabbled in poetry and short stories, purely for personal self-expression. I experimented with a couple of creative writing classes, but never pursued my secret desire of a writing career, feeling the vocation was too self-indulgent, not sensible enough for my German blood. I remained focused on psychology and received a Bachelor of Arts degree, upon which I secured my very first “real” job as a Senior Psychiatric Counselor at a group home for adults with mental illness. Wanting to further my learning, I attended Suffolk University in Beacon Hill in Boston, and graduated two years later, obtaining a Masters degree in Counseling and Human Relations.

Soon afterward, feeling weighed down by too many sunless days and frigid winters, I decided to move to a much lighter state, and settled in bustling Pinellas County in southwestern Florida. Over the next twenty years I concentrated further on my work in counseling and social services and became a licensed practitioner. During these years, my career included being a social services director for a nursing center, program manager for a rehabilitation agency, social services consultant for nursing centers, program director of an Alzheimer’s unit, and a hospice counselor.

Several years ago, due to a deep longing to express my feelings in an alternative manner, I literally sat down one day and began writing my first novel. The resultant book, The Resurrection of Hannah, had been born out of a series of powerful dreams, along with compelling and coexisting experiences that inspired me to create a story that would capture the strength of my emotions. I had a yearning to shape a tale based around individuals in my life that I believed would make engaging characters. I had a strong desire to experience a higher level of creativity, to literally produce something out of nothing– a fascinating and challenging endeavor I could not ignore. It was during this time that I moved for a short duration to Houston, Texas where I became a clinical hypnotherapist and a nationally certified counselor, as well as starting a private practice as a psychotherapist.

But I grew “antsy” as my father used to say and decided to move back to friends and family in Florida and worked again at the local Hospice, then more recently in community mental health. Once bitten by the writing bug, I could not help but pen my second work of fiction, The Fear of Things to Come. I am now in the process of writing another novel in what I consider a unique collection of adventure stories, the third in the Samantha Clark Mystery Series.

“Living Thanksgiving”

Posted on November 11, 2012 at 8:36pm 0 Comments

I’m conflicted every year when this holiday season rolls around. The holidays are predictable, as sure as my next breath, something solid you can count on. Both Thanksgiving and Christmas/Hanukkah help to break up…

“A Twist(er) of Fate”

Posted on September 3, 2012 at 2:27pm 0 Comments

The recent damage to some regions of the Gulf Coast, brought on by Hurricane Isaac, has spurred memories of a day long ago full of great fury and fear. As I watched the sky and ocean in earnest last week for the predicted torrential wind, storm surge, tornados and floods, a great feeling of relief washed…

Bye-bye Baby Tooth

Posted on July 30, 2012 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

The past couple of weeks I’ve been struggling with a loss in my life that many cannot relate to, which makes it even more difficult to get a good handle on. I’m an adult of a “mature” age who just lost one of two baby teeth I’ve managed to keep possession of for several decades. I don’t know…

Hi Kathryne. Thanks for the friendship. So glad you enjoyed the trailer for Concentric Circles. That video was made in Windows Moviemaker. I used a combination of images purchased from stock photo sites and two video (cars racing & clouds) clips from istockphoto.com. If you've never done it before it's a learning curve, but once you master it and see what you've made it's like that feeling you get when you're finished with your book. ;D Good Luck. ~ Aithne

Kathryne! Forgive my delay in accepting your friend request with thanks -- thought I had and have been so busy through summer have spent little time on SW.

 

Looking forward to connecting and hope your work is going well!

Stacey

I find it challenging to keep up as well, Kathryne so I'm resigned to not even trying! I want to be supportive by commenting on other writers' blogs, but can't do so as much as I'd like. I think each of us have to find what part of SheWrites is best for us. I don't think there's any once-size-fits-all approach. I'm still tweaking the amount of time I spend here myself - and keep up with my own writing!
