About the Author

With one foot planted in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia and the other in the concrete streets of Brooklyn, New York, I consider myself fortunate to be able to experience both worlds. I was born and raised in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn, and now primarily reside in Roanoke with my husband and quirky Malti-Zhu.

As a former videotape editor, producer, freelance newspaper columnist, and now independent author, I believe the toughest, yet most rewarding career has been being mom.

Well, the kiddies have long fled the nest, and now it's supposed to be "my time" again. This cancer survivor certainly hopes so!

“Fractured Façade,” a novel written as memoir, was my debut book. It wasn't the book I wanted to write, it was the book I had to write, and yes, it's based on a true story.

“The Valentine’s Day Curse,” a short story, is my most recent publication.
