My Bio Author, poet, blogger, book reviewer, teacher, memoir workshop facilitator ... I am all of these and then some, along with being a wife and grandmother. In 2013, I wrote & self-published my memoir of child sexual abuse, incest actually, at the hands of my biological father. My book, titled "NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER" was awarded a gold medal in the 2014 Readers Favorite Book Awards. At the request of fans, I wrote and self-published my follow-up book, "LEARNING TO LOVE MYSELF", my story of recovery & self-discovery after abuse. Both books are available in both print & eBook formats from my personal website. I am now completing a third book, "THE LADIES OF LORETTO" and embarking on my new venture as editor/publisher of a magazine for memoir writers, "MEMOIRABILIA". Please note this magazine is available in both printed and ebook formats, but shipping cost on the printed mag via Blurb is beyond my control. The ePub version for iPad with clickable links is the best bang for your buck. Enjoy!

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
How to write Memoirs! But then, there's already lots of books about that and I'm already publishing a magazine, MEMOIRABILIA, on the same subject. I'm currently completing a book which is slightly fictionalized memoir, but not really, about my 5 years in a Catholic convent high school for girls. It's full of good humour, some whimsy, some sadness ie. it's life, like both my other books. After that, who knows? Oh, be sure to check out the video trailer for my book, NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER. Creepy!
