I am a Retired Registered Nurse who raised three children before returning to school to pursue my writing passion. I was Sarah Lawrence College eldest graduate in 2013 and once again in 2017 when I earned an MFA at age sixty-five. As Lorrie Moore advises in “How to be a Writer-try everything else first.” I did just that, and now writing is not only my passion, it’s my final incarnation. Armed with sixty plus years of life experience, I wrote “Reinventing Jenna Rose” a novel awaiting representation. I infused the novel with stories I’d heard and stories I imagined in mind, as well as adding vivid details of the New York City scene and references to literary characters.
