I am a writer and editor. I write poems, some of which have appeared in local and national journals in the US. My opinion editorials have appeared in two major US newspapers. I edit book manuscripts, web content, and marketing material. I edit–and sometimes rewrite–technical web content so the average person can understand it. I also contribute to my writing group’s blog at Yellow Wallpaper Writers.

In addition to being a writer and editor, I am also a wife and mother; a teacher and student; a foodie, a sometime gardener, a reluctant swimmer, and lifelong opera lover; a knitter and quilter; a daughter, sister, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, and cousin; an italophile and a voracious reader.
