Born and raised on Staten Island, New York, writing was always her passion. Her favorite assignments were essays or compositions and, as a teenager, she began submitting short stories to magazines. Ever pursuing the dream to write a novel, she attended Brookdale Community College and later wrote biographies in a monthly column for a local Florida newsletter. She has been writing ever since.

Today she resides in Florida with her husband, Anthony, and participates as a member of multiple Florida Writers Associations. She completed her first work, Coach in Cottage C, with co-author, J.R. Minard and has individually published her second book, Goodbye Danube, a historical fiction novel based on a family of six who escaped Budapest during the 1956 Hungarian Uprising. Her third book is in progress.
