NEW BIO: I was born in Detroit but spent most of my life in Chicago where I earned undergraduate degrees in music & education, and graduate degrees in music, the science of education, and special ed. I taught in the Chicago Public schools for 35 years, and at the University of Illinois, Chicago campus.

I've been writing all my adult life: articles, essays, creative non-fiction for newsletters, magazines, and blogs. In 1995, I purchased a Victorian mansion in Old Louisville, KY, and turned it into a bed and breakfast. There, I co-authored a cookbook titled Room at the Table

After selling my inn in 2015,  I moved to Vermont near my family to write full time. In 2017,  I published Operatic Divas and Naked Irishmen,  based on my experiences as an innkeeper. Next, my 2nd, Roxie and Alfred, was published in Feb of this year. Although I consider myself a memoirist, I wanted to try writing fiction, so here it is, my 3rd book, one of Historical Fiction, titled The Other Side of the Family.
