After ending an accomplished career as a fraud investigator, I am now a full-time writer and bestselling author. My books include the award-winning Chocolate for Breakfast (the first book in the Swiss Chocolate trilogy) and Amazon bestsellers Bits of Broken Glass and Best Seller.
My novel Villa del Sol was awarded the 2018 Book Prize in Literary Fiction by the Independent Publishers of New England.
The most horrible year 2020 knocked me off course, but I’m determined to have a new novel for you in 2021. The Summer of Princess Diana is a work-in-progress, still not ready for you to see it, but I’m moving forward!
Meanwhile, I blog here – mainly about life, family, friends, and the changing world around us.
I’ve participated in the April A to Z Challenge since 2012, and look forward to the new year! If you’re wondering about past themes, I’ve done:
- Authors, Poets, Lyricists
- Oh! The Places I’ve Been!Oh! The Places I’ve Been!
- Smile! And say…. (the infamous cheese theme)
- Listen Up! (Musical instruments)
- Paris Between the Wars
- Broadway Musicals
- Yes, But Would You Eat It?
I’ve challenged myself to write fast during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), completing the messy first draft of Chocolate Fondue in November 2012. In July 2013, I wrote 50,000 words for Bittersweet Chocolate, the third and final book in the series, during Camp NaNoWriMo.
It’s never too late to pursue your dream……and I am living proof.
