Bewildering Stories biography

Although I was an English Lit. major at the University of Pennsylvania, I didn’t attempt to produce anything creatively since high school.

I worked for over twenty years as a psychotherapist (MS Villanova) and then in the pharma world as a monitor on clinical trials. Don’t ask.

Once I retired, about a year ago, I opened the door in my head and discovered at least a hundred characters living in there just waiting to tell their stories. As a result, I’ve written about seventy short stories; fifty of them have been published I’m happy to say.

I’m a native Philadelphian and still live there with my husband near Valley Forge Park.

I have two grown children and two grandchildren.

The words and deeds of my friends and family have been the inspiration for many a quirky tale.
