about Me

I'm a 38-year-old author from Buffalo, NY. Until September 2022, I lived in Bremerhaven, Germany for 11 years and worked as a teacher and Zumba Fitness instructor.


I write for Huffington Post, InsiderElephant Journal, Buffalo Rising and Buffalo Spree. I am also the recipient of first place award for creative non-fiction in the Olive Woolley Burt Award given by League of Utah Writers.  

In my spare time, I am at the gym, reading everything I can, gardening or attending poetry open mics around town.

Drop me a line if you want to know more about me or my work! Always happy to communicate with readers.


My Writing

I write humor, dramedy, fiction and 

creative non-fiction.

Current projects:


A bilingual screenplay of a series Ex-Pats about four English-speaking women living in Germany. It outlines the linguistic and interpersonal struggles of life in a foreign country.

A modern-day re-write of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice entitled Merchant of Texas, co-authored by Michael Kopalek. 

A memoir of the eleven years I spent in Bremerhaven, Germany as a foreign language and Zumba teacher.

screenplay based on my experiences since returning to the USA.

A fictional romance novel (but not sappy, I promise!)
