I wrote plays, poems, short and long stories when I was younger. After I graduated from High School, I became a freelance photographer and my creativity focused on the visual world. I transitioned away from photography as a full time job and became a K-1 teacher which brought me right back to my first love: children's books and writing.
I mostly write on my computer although I sometimes write on my phone. I'll ask my phone to take a note when I'm driving and I want to get my thoughts out. I also write in a notebook because sometimes there are ideas that will only become clear when I put pen to paper.
I am the Assistant Regional Advisor of SCBWI Westchester. I live in the Historic Hudson Valley and love to take long walks with my dog.
