I grew up near Cardiff, New York, a place best known for its giant, a hoax so successful, P.T. Barnum duplicated it. The tale of the “petrified man” taught me that inventing stories could be a career.
Although my 30 years of working in local television included such highlights as:
- being bitten by a lion
- preempting a US President for a college basketball game
- giving a three-time world champion boxer a few black eyes
- meeting my husband
the urge to write my own stories has never gone away.
I still live in upstate New York with my husband. Music and cooking are two of my passions, and I enjoy baseball, college basketball, and sitting on my patio on summer nights to count lightning bugs, but I’m primarily focused on writing.
