I started writing poems and stories when I was very young, though sadly I didn't save many of them. I continued writing poetry throughout high school and college, then took a hiatus for a few years while I was working full-time jobs. I "rediscovered" it in about 2002, and have been writing poems ever since. Many of them have been published in anthologies or literary journals or the like. You can find a list of them by clicking on "Published Works" on the left-hand side of the screen or by clicking the link below.
My first picture book, AT THE BOARDWALK, was released in 2012. I've had a number of poems accepted for publication. I very much hope to see more of my poems in print! (Shh . . . don't tell, but I'm also working on a young adult novel.)
I currently live in southern New Jersey with my sweetheart, where I spend a lot of time in my lovely writing room, working on poems and stories. I have two daughters who are quite grown-up and busy at college, and a cat named Kismet, of whom I take far too many photos.
