ABOUT ME...........

I'm originally from the Boston area, an RN and an author of women's fiction with Kensington Publishing since 2008.  I've resided in Florida for the past 23 years and moved to an island off the west coast of Florida in February, 2005.  Going from a mid-size city to a small town with 900 permanent residents is giving me enough material to write till I'm 100.  Reached via four small bridges from the mainland, the island has no major shopping, no movie theaters, no doctors or pharmacy, not one traffic light and the most practical way to get around the island is by golf cart....however, we do have two banks, a library, a market, assorted gift shops and Mother Nature everywhere.  Surrounded by water, our wildlife is amazing.  We're a fishing village and the main industry is clam farming, so we're also a boaters paradise.  For me, it's the ideal trade-off to have to drive 40 minutes for all we don't have here.  When my husband retired in December of 2004, after visiting here for fourteen years, we knew this is where we want to be.

I hope you'll enjoy my entries on both the writing life and living here on this slice of heaven, in addition to my knitting projects, books I'm reading, my dogs Duncan and Brie and my cats, Marcel, Foster and Ralph or anything else that interests me.  If you'd like to keep abreast of my entries, I hope you'll add me to your Favorites or the RSS feed.  Hope you'll come back and visit often. A lot of work.
