About Me

I'm a verse novel and short fiction author, screenwriter (TV, film and the web), actress and poet from Levittown, Pennsylvania. After several years of acting -- and performing in dozens of TV shows, films and commercials -- I returned to my writing roots. I studied screenwriting then embraced my loves of fiction and poetry.

 

I wrote Depth of Focus: A Novel and Depth of Focus: The Stanzas. Verse novels, both books tell the same story of a young woman's quest for independence, love, career success and the healing of her broken family. But, one version of the book (The Stanzas) is broken into the poetry/rhythm I heard when I originally wrote it. Currently living in Los Angeles, I'm writing my 2nd and 3rd verse novels -- Siblings & Other Torture Devices (comedy) and Windmills(drama/suspense). For each, I plan to release both versions.

 

You can read excerpts, a full description, etc. on my site:

I also have several listed on Scribd:

Depth of Focus: The Stanzas - Excerpt 1

Depth of Focus: A Novel - Chapters 1-4

Windmills: A Novel - Excerpt 1, Excerpt 2, Excerpt 3

Siblings & Other Torture Devices: A Novel - Excerpt 1, Excerpt 2, Excerpt 3

Checked Out (Flash Fiction, Romance/Dark Comedy)

Drive (Flash Fiction, Suspense/Comedy)

She Writes in California

It would be great to meet other aspiring writers, either journalists, bloggers or novelists. If we have enough people, maybe we can even hold group meetings and get to know each other even more.

You can't be serious!  No one goes to Perkasie for work, do they?!  I've been to LA once though.  Went to a fancy mall and saw the walk of stars and to some beach.  And those Beverly Hills mansions, wow!  (you live in one of those?!)
