Before becoming addicted to writing, I worked on Broadway and on the road as an actress, singer and stage manager. Small Time, my second play, won Theatre Guinevere's "Guinny Award" and was later part of the Maxwell Anderson Playwright's Series. An enthusiastic traveler, I have written for the Travel Section of The Washington Post and magazines such as Rock & Gem and The Gold Prospector (inspired by old mining camps to Australia and New Zealand.) In memory of my toy poodle, Jackie, I wrote about a Musical Comedy troupe touring the United States with pet dogs, published in the Anthology Good Dogs Doing Good, and a short story that won second prize in the American Kennel Club Magazine contest. Articles dealing with American history have appeared in magazines such as American Spirit, Pennsylvania, The Elks and The Villager. An avid fan of mysteries, my short stories have appeared in Mystery Time, RTP and The Deadly Ink Anthology. I am married to Bob Bernard, a dazzling tap dancer; we live in and love New York City. Scene Stealer, a mystery, is my first eBook - published by Carina Press- and my first audio book – published by www.audible.com .
I enjoy traveling, reading--both fiction and non-fiction, theatre and music. Once in a while, I enjjoy cooking, more often dining at an Italiam or Chhinese restaurant.
