I was born November 13th, 1968 in Chicago, Illinois. I’m a Scorpio with Scorpio rising, for those who are astrologically-inclined. People often describe me as “intense.” I have an older brother, Dave, and the two of us were raised by my mom, a single parent, moving often.
I’m not sure if it’s because I’m part Hungarian gypsy, but the moving trend continued as an adult, with stop offs in both Arizona and New Mexico. At the moment, I’m back in Chicagoland, living in the suburbs with my husband and cat.
I have always wanted to be a writer. I’ve taken courses online at Writer’s Online University, read lots of Writer’s Digest books on technique, and subscribe to Writer’s Digest magazine. And, of course, I love to read. Yet I never devoted enough time to my passion. I would always get around to writing “someday.”
When the company I worked for closed its doors, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to write my first novel. While working on the second draft, I was meditating and got an idea: why not put a few short stories together as an e-book and share them with everyone–for fun, and to help raise money for animals. 10% of the book’s sale price is donated to the ASPCA®.
I hope everyone who reads For Animal Lovers enjoys it. I like to think it is affordable entertainment for all ages. Recently, I found out mom’s were reading the stories to their children. Since I don’t have kids, I hadn’t even thought of that. When I received an email from an 8-year-old fan saying how much he loved “Abduction at Sea,” and that it was his favorite story, it put a smile on my face. It made me think: what could be cooler than that?
