Simple things like a cup of Earl Grey and a good book bring me joy. I’m a collector of crystals, vintage cameras, typewriters, and tea cups. My favorite movie is Practical Magic.
For as long as I can remember I’ve felt a strong connection to nature, especially the moon and trees. Being near water soothes my soul.
Upstate New York has always been my home, and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. We moved into our dream cottage a couple years ago. Like me and the magical stories I’m working on, it’s also a work in progress.
a Writer's Life
A little over ten years ago I began pursing my dream of being a “real” writer. Several courses, many books on writing, along with women’s and young adult fiction have inspired and guided this chosen path. Even when I wandered away from my dream, it was always in my heart which made it feel right to come back to.
Growing up I was intrigued by movies and stories with magical elements, so it’s no surprise that’s what I’ve been called to write. If it works for my book, there’s most likely going to be magic within its pages.
The last two years found me longing for a slow and simpler life, more aligned with my dreams and authentic self. With patience and practice I continue making changes toward living an intentional life. You can learn more about my experiences in articles I’ve published or through my blog and Instagram.
Ever since that first whisper of an idea to be an author, I’ve been creating and cultivating a writer’s life. I have many books started, mapped out and ready to write, and can’t wait to share them with you.
