I grew up in New York, but my Great Aunt's country house in Connecticut was home. As an only child I couldn't wait to spend barefoot summer months with my cousins, building forts, river-tubing, telling stories by the fire, playing charades and freeze tag, putting on plays and pulling pranks.
I credit my mother for my love of books, sense of adventure, vivid imagination, and for teaching me to perservere. She died before my writing journey began, but I believe her spirit remains with me.
My love of words is in my blood. My Great Aunt, Annie Laurie Williams and her husband, Maurice Crain, were both Literary Agent. My aunt sold Gone With the Wind to the movies and my uncle represented Nell Harper Lee. What I wouldn't give to be able to talk to them now!
I live in Connecticut with my daughter, son, and husband. I write middle-grade and young adult fiction and am currently seeking representation.
