Bewildering Stories biography

I started writing stories in college and, like others, have been in numerous writing groups since then: some demoralizing, most, inspiring. My professional career has been long and winding, from database marketing to medicine to real estate to private investigation. I’m drawn to dark comedy, quirky characters, strange circumstances, and ethical conundrums.

I’m the author of Dementions, a satire about a young doctor trying to succeed at a cutting-edge clinic whose mandate is to shorten the suffering of elderly dementia patients and their family members.

Other works have been published in Prometheus Dreaming, Defenestration, Datura, Lyrical Passion Poetry, Friday Flash Fiction, Door Is A Jar, and now, proudly, Bewildering Stories.

My literary heroes are George Saunders, Joan Didion, Julian Barnes, Edna O’Brien, William Trevor, Martin Amis, Margaret Atwood, and, for giggles, Tom Sharpe and P.G Woodhouse.

A recent empty-nester, I live in Connecticut with my witty artist husband, and enjoy refinishing furniture, long beach walks, and cooking yummy food.
