Welcome to my website and blog.
I am a writer. I write stories of personal experiences over a long life. My writing life began in my sunset years.
My story, “Face of a Nun” has been published in an anthology. I wrote and published a newsletter for writers for four years, and I write, “Profiles”, a column about published authors for a local newspaper.
Curiosity prompts my thirst for the craft of writing. Curiosity inspires new ideas and leads my reading choices as well as my topics for writing.
A variety of personal essays on my website have a recurring theme of survival.
- I survived a tornado when only seven. Read Story
- I left a convent at age thirty-seven and survived starting over. Read Story
- I am a breast cancer survivor since age sixty-two. Read Story

MuseLiteraryManagement@aol.com VEILS AND VOWS tells the story of twenty years of my life in a convent. In my BLOG I share the journey of bringing the memoir to completion with editing help from my agent.
