About Me

writing, cooking, creating, remembering.

I have always been a voracious reader who marvels at the power of words. After a long career in consulting and business writing, I decided to try my hand at creative writing.

I am in full exploration mode, from memoirs to fiction, poetry and personal essays. I write for pleasure at this point in my life. The words that flow out of my hands onto the computer screen are a source of great wonder and satisfaction and will see me through the twilight of my years.

My first book originates from a memoir workshop I took, using food as a remembrance tool. Writing food stories brought to mind the recipes associated with the stories, and before I knew it, a food memoir/recipe book was ready for an audience.

I have shifted my emphasis to fiction in the last year and am currently at work on a novel.
