"You are a terrific writer – the characters and locations are vivid in my mind’s eye which means that you have the gift."
Hello and Welcome to My World!
I am proud to say that my novels have been compared to some timeless bestseller authors. I am even more proud of having my own voice. I have my own take on life's dramatic elements and my own style of threading a story, intertwining characters and events. The whirling romance, the surprising adventure, the colorful worlds in which the characters live, all add up to unique people getting caught up in unique situations and sometimes finding themselves . . . or not.
I am not exactly a novice. Until I left Los Angeles, I was a member of the Writers Guild of America, West. That’s not easy to achieve. I earned that privilege by developing storylines for television and being contributing writer. Three of my original screenplays were acquired under paid options by production companies.
Yours Forever...Maybe, a contemporary romantic fiction was first published in December 2011 by Lane Unlimited. My second novel published by Trafford Publishing, is a globetrotting romantic adventure set in the male dominated 1950s, entitled Wasted...Maybe. The third one in my ...Maybe series is Shelby’s Way...Maybe and depicts a young woman’s coming of age; learning to deal with men; motherhood and friendship.
There are other works in the development stages, such as a lighthearted novella, Carnal Woman - A Travelogue, about a one week sojourn in picturesque Portugal. I also wrote The Island, designed as a story background bible for a television serial that almost materialized as a daytime soap at Columbia TV and which is waiting to become a novel. A Skirt and A Smile is a collection of sexy short stories.
A more literary endeavor for a larger canvas is my memoir, waiting for announcement of a publishing date. Its working title is AFTERGLOW: My Memoir - Cruising on The Exodus, Escaping from Communism, Surviving Hollywood, Discovering Hurricanes. The True Story.
I won first prize for the only short story I ever entered, My Exodus. That's 1 for 1! For two years I wrote an entertainment column entitled Notes From The West Coast in a specialized national newspaper originating from California; interviewed several celebrities such as composers Misha Segal and Tommy Vig; Ace Fighter Pilot Lou Lenart; historic leader Dan Perry; Israeli entertainer Yoel Sharr; and developed a Profile of one time hair styling superstar, Vidal Sassoon.
I love what I write and I hope you will love what you read.
