I am an Italian/Irish gal living in a small town in Pennsylvania. I always think the glass is half full and think life is what you make it. I love symbolism and try to incorporate a lot of it into my writing.
In college I wrote a poem about a ladybug and was surprised when my profressor asked if he could include it in the annual literary magazine. My father told me to hold on to that because I never knew if I would need it one day. At the time I didn’t realize that writing was always my first love, it was just something I did.
Having children turned the lightbulb on and I never shut it off. I took writing courses with the Institute of Children’s Literature, joined critique groups and devoured anything I could get my hands on regarding this wonderful craft. I placed runner-up in a SCBWI monthly contest and that was what I needed to keep going. ABC studios purchased a story on motherhood from me for the short lived comedy “In the Motherhood.”
I hope that fate and good writing hooks me up with a fantastic agent and my journey leads to a good destination.
Every writer has a dream. I am waiting for mine to come true.
