Actually I've already written that book.
Crown Hill, A Novel of Love, Life and The Afterlife chronicles the history of a 150-year old farmhouse that I called home for 20 years. The house's story of love, life and the afterlife was revealed to me through anonymous letters, phone calls and resultant research that I undertook.
For anyone interested in hearing more about the story behind the Crown Hill story, contact me and let's set a date for an author presentation for your book group, neighborhood friends or book-loving family. I love to travel and share my Crown Hill journey.(less)

Now that I write stories for a living, I have become the personification of that axiom, if you love what you do, it never seems like work.
In a nutshell, for me the best thing about writing is telling the stories that make a difference---whether in an op-ed newspaper column, a company newsletter, a campaign speech, a magazine profile or a book. The ability to weave words in ways that make people think, feel, care, is a gift and I am always grateful when readers thank me for my words. It is at those moments that I am sure of my purpose.

Of all the Heart & Soul newspaper columns and radio commentaries I penned on the subject of love during my 15-year career, the one you are about to read is my absolute favorite.

It’s about a story told to me by my friend, Barbara Polasik, a very special lady I met upon moving to the Town of Eden, NY in 1995, as I was starting over in my post-divorce life.

Barbara first shared her story...
