I Live to Write!
I'm a Maryland independent writer, now based in Baltimore, and a proud member of the Author's Guild. I have contributed articles to "Classical Singer," "Opera News," and "Huff Post," where I've profiled some of America’s best singers and covered entertainment news. I've also written for newspapers.
I also launched a writing business in Washington, D.C., and as a freelancer created promotional materials for schools, banks, hospitals, and other companies. I coauthored a writing course for McGraw-Hill. Prior to earning a living through words, I did public affairs and/or marketing for Goodspeed Opera House, Syracuse Stage, and New York's Joffrey Ballet.
I hold a B.A. in Humanities from Michigan State where I studied playwriting with Arthur Athanason. Later, I studied fiction writing with authors Doris Grumbach and Patricia Browning Griffith. I published my debut novel as an indie in 2012 and just completed my first historical novel about the life of American trick shot, Annie Oakley, and her conflicts with her magnetic boss, W. F. Cody. In my personal life, I'm married to a health-care executive and we have one beautiful adult daughter.
