I am a Retired Registered Nurse who raised three children before returning to school to pursue my writing passion. I was Sarah Lawrence College's 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 currently being published by Fat Dog Books Inc.. 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. My short stories can be found in,, as well as My novel, "Reinventing Jenna Rose" will be out in June 2019 and will be available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. A synopsis can be found on this site
