Growing up in the Hamptons in the '60s and '70s, there was no such thing as paparazzi or People magazine. "Townies" felt it was an honor to work for the rich and famous. My personal interactions with those of Hampton society would fuel my desire to write a series of books set in the small hamlets on the south shore of Long Island.

My tenth-grade English teacher told me I'd never write a novel. After high school, I took the advice of my favorite poet, Robert Frost, and followed "The Road Not Taken." I went on to become an award-winning mathematics teacher in a high school outside of Syracuse, NY. Once I retired from my dream job, I pulled out my bucket list–write a book and travel. While grocery shopping, I discovered Irish Thoroughbred by Nora Roberts in the book aisle. I still have the copy in my nightstand. That book set me on my journey to writing Hampton Thoroughbreds. LOVE ON THE RUN was born!

When not writing, I knit and love being a Nana. My travels to Europe are not complete, but hopefully I can finish my list. London is my all-time favorite place to visit, followed by Paris and Switzerland. I now have an Instagram account where I'll post many of my travel photos for you to enjoy. I can often be found in my downtime with a cup of Earl Grey tea, reading Pride and Prejudice variations on my Kindle.

Remember, dear readers: We are not promised tomorrow. It is a gift. Live and enjoy each day as if it were your last.
