I learned how to read when I was only three and have loved reading to this day. It was wonderful to find myself in far away places with magical characters.

I started writing TV “Scripts” for one of my favorite shows when I was ten years old. I began writing again as an adult – short stories for adults published in online eZines, several magazines and four anthologies.

I was a pediatric Physical Therapist for 30 years, working in a school system. Some of my favorite times were working in preschool classes with some of my students while the teacher read books to the class. I loved to watch the student’s eyes light up as they listened to the tales.


I wondered if I could bring that excitement with my writing and began working on a children’s story and in February 2012, my debut picture book, The Penguin Lady was published.
