I grew up knowing family is paramount. I was blessed to spend time with extended family daily, not just on holidays or weekends. Because of those close-knit familial bonds, every day was full of love and laughter, food and fun.

Life took me away from that extended family for twenty years before I finally made it back. And while I'd done my best to keep the traditions alive across the miles, I realize there truly is no place like home.

Through my fiction, I share those traditions and the importance of relationships with you. Mystery or suspense, romance or mainstream, sci-fi or thriller—in my stories, family (however you define it) is paramount.

I don't really get writer's block. There are days I know what I want to say but can't figure out the right way to say it, but that's different than not knowing what to say at all. When that happens, I just write poorly. I can always clean up bad writing later. For people who don't know what to say at all? Well, I'd say write anything. Write gibberish if you have to. Eventually that will turn into crappy words, which will turn into something better. And then you'll have a story, which you can then go back and edit later. Who knows? The gibberish may end up being fodder for your next story, anyway.(less)

The answer will be different for everyone. It's probably different for me every day. But I think having a creative outlet for all the things I want to say is pretty darn satisfying.(less)

It’s 2022 and I’m Back with You!

Ciao, amici! Happy New Year, eleven days late. I hope your holidays were wonderful. My daughter and her husband came home, and I joked about monopolizing all her time. Now I feel bad about saying that. We were exposed to COVID shortly after she arrived, so we were quarantined for most of her visit because … Continue reading It’s 2022 and I’m Back with You!
