I was six and in love with a neighbor when I wrote my first “POME,” “Roses are red, violets are blue, I love you, and I am not kidding.”
Since that time, I have had essays published in “The New York Times” and “Detroit Free Press.” In 2009, University of Michigan Press published my memoir, “The Accidental Teacher: Life Lessons from my Silent Son.” The book recalls the many lessons taught by my now grown son with severe autism.
I have written several short stories and am working on a novel. Stay tuned.
Though I am a native New Yorker, I have lived in the Midwest for more than 30 years. Still, I admit, it’s “cawfee” you’ll hear me ordering at my neighborhood Starbuck’s.
I am mom to three, still crazy about the man I married more than 32 years ago, and despite being an empty nester, am never bored.
I love to write. Always have. Always will.
