My writer side:
• My favorite topics are ones that matter most to women and families: how to raise children, organize homes and lives, take care of pets, stay physically fit, well and happy. I'm also quite fond of the personal essay.
• Having worked in a radio newsroom, I know how to collect and digest information from innumerable sources and condense it into hard copy fast.
• Time spent as an advertising copywriter taught me how to deliver short but snappy script that gets the point across.
• Never miss a deadline. In fact, I'm more likely to hand an assignment in early.  

My personal side:
• Married and mother of teenagers - a daughter and a son.
• I work at a public library part-time and occasionally substitute teach.
• More often than not, you'll find me with my nose stuck in a book. Favorite authors include Anne Tyler, Anna Quindlen, and Elizabeth Berg. Lately I have developed quite an affinity for personal memoirs.
• I'm a regular at the gym, taking spin class or logging miles on the treadmill.
• Known far and wide for my apple pies.
