I am the author of nine novels, including the Amazon bestsellers CHOCOLATE FOR BREAKFAST and BITS OF BROKEN GLASS.

My writing has appeared in Magnificat magazine and my very short poem was read by journalist Connie Schultz during National Public Radio's "Tell Me More" poetry challenge.

I live in Rhode Island, never far from the ocean.

My novel VILLA DEL SOL won the 2018 Book Prize in Literary Fiction from the Independent Publishers of New England.

She Loves You by Ann Hood
"Well this sure is a book that exists. Please, don't buy all the 4-5 star reviews that this book has on here. I'm pretty sure they're all from adults who are just nostalgic for the 60s because they were probably around Trudy's age during that decade.

Martha Reynolds and 117 other people liked Beata's review of The Summer Country:
The Summer Country by Lauren Willig
"This was a perfect summer HF read for me: exotic setting, a mystery and wonderful narration. THE SUMMER COUNTRY had me invested from the start, with its story of a young English vicar's daughter who goes off to Barbados and finds out about her roots." Read more of this review »

“Wishes father thought, but they don't breed evidence.”
John Galsworthy

“Lovers of print are simply confusing the plate for the food.”
Douglas Adams

“Writers are the exorcists of their own demons.”
Mario Vargas-Llosa

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
