My novels are always set in the “not-too-distant past” and examine how women reinvent themselves despite obstacles thrown their way. A central theme is that blood is not all that makes a family– and they always feature a piece of jewelry! My debut novel, The Disharmony of Silence, released March 5, 2020, right before Covid19 locked us down. And my second book, Sisters of the Vine, came out one year later, as we were slowly finding our way out of the pandemic. In addition to writing novels, I was a contributor to Women in the Literary Landscape: A WNBA Centennial Publication for the Women's National Book Association and have had stories published in online magazines and print anthologies. I am a member of the Women's Fiction Writers Association and the Women’s National Book Association where I hold the position of Selections Coordinator of the Great Group Reads committee which curates a list, published annually, of novels and memoirs perfect for book clubs.
