My writing is informed by my fascination with the past. For nearly fourteen years, I worked as an antiques cataloguer and appraiser at a busy auction house, where I headed the glass, ceramics, silver, and toy departments. For many years, I've enjoyed a love affair with old objects, golden age Hollywood movies, and previous eras--particularly the art deco period. The past has woven its way into my heart and now into my writing.

Since 2007, I've earned my living as a freelance fiction editor. I've helped numerous authors pursue their dreams of self-publishing. I've realized that dream myself with the publication of Virginia's Ghost, my first novel.

I have little information but know that he was a married to someone other than my grandmother. He had children of his own and had a fling with my grandmother, which resulted in the birth of my mother. At that time, the 1920s, it would have been scandalous. So my mother had a father and half-siblings she never met. I love the notion of constructing a story around this--how my grandmother met the man who was to be the father of her child, how the affair ended, the stigma my grandmother suffered as an unwed mother, and so on.

I'm surprised The Shoemaker's Wife hasn't been made into a film, as this is a truly cinematic novel, magnificent in scope as it follows the Italian immigrant experience in the early 20th century. The reader travels with the characters from the Italia ...more
