I worked in Television Network Operations for decades. After TV, I worked for the City of New York. I have since retired. I now have the time I need to devote to writing more often and more seriously.
I have been writing all my life, for my own self-exploration, deep within myself. I have explored the "Bats in the Belfrys of the Windmills of my mind" for my own amusement. I have written some very funny as well as very sad stories. I have completed my first novel, "Round Coffin: The triumph of love over death."
I believe that I have been blessed with a restless mind and the ability to see through more than just my own eyes; a quality which is very helpful for a writer. I like to write myself into a corner, and then figure out how to write myself out of it. I like to explore the strength and the weaknesses of my characters as well as their human foibles. I like to put them in stressful situations and see how they react, what they feel and what they do. I also like to see how these situations change them, how it changes the priorities in their lives. I also like my characters to face moral dilemmas, and see what choices they make. I like to see how the decisions they make affects their own lives and the lives of others. As a writer, I strive to be artistic with my words and ideas arranged in sensible, maybe even beautifully orchestrated sentences.
I write fiction, generally aimed at the Women's Market, but also for other genres as well, so as not to limit myself. I have written a number of short stories and I have completed my first novel. I have entered many writing contests, and I continue to do so. I have also submitted to many literary agents. Thus far, none of my work has been published anywhere. I hope that situation will change in the near future.
