A writer for most of my life, I’m the author of ten novels, short stories, and many essays.  I earned my PhD in English and American Literature from Brandeis University and am currently on the English faculty at Norwalk Community College in Connecticut, where I actively encourage student writers and have co-chaired the annual Writer’s Conference.  I’m a founding member of one of the three Connecticut chapters of Romance Writers of America, have twice been President of The Beau Monde - the national chapter devoted to the interests of writers of the Regency period – and am in my sixth year of service on the Board of Romance Writers of America.



While I grew up in New York City and have also lived in Boston and The Hague, home is now an eighteenth century farm in Connecticut.
