I am a writer with a background marketing and public relations. For years, creative non-fiction was my thing. I wrote essays, articles, personal blogs as well as songs and poems. My syndicated humor column called  “Mom in the Middle”  was one of the most popular pages on Patch/AOL for a couple of years. 

Finally, I took the plunge and authored my first novel, Start with the Backbeat. It will be published by She Writes Press in the spring of 2016!!!! (details to come)

Check out some of my previous writing at the sidebar and my current blog:  “Hi!” from the ‘burbs.
