reading and writing a part of your life? Who were your earliest
influences and why?
grew up on Long Island, NY--born in Amityville, grew up in
Massapequa. I started keeping diaries in third grade, always felt
that writing was a great release.
My first books were Nancy Drew mysteries. At 14, I started reading
my Mom's Taylor Caldwell books and found Mary Stuart's Merlin
series. I became hooked on romance, paranormal possibilities and
history. I read, and do read, all the time. (Usually three books
going at once.)
PAGEONELIT.COM: Why do you write?
I feel moved to write. I get a glimpse of a
character, an idea, or visit a place, and I'm gone. The story takes
hold and I want to tell it.
