About me

Location FL, United States
Introduction An avid reader, I was introduced to English authors early in life (from classic literature such as PERSUASION by Jane Austen and JANE EYRE by Charlotte Bronte, to period romances by Margaret Campbell Barnes, Victoria Holt/Jean Plaidy/Philippa Carr (all one person!) and Georgette Heyer, and to the mysteries of Dorothy Sayers, Patricia Wentworth and Agatha Christie). I am fascinated by England and its history, and multiple visits to England have only heightened her interest. A member of JASNA since about 2001,have delivered multiple programs to the JASNA S Florida Region and a breakout session at the Annual General Meeting in 2011. My first book, HEYERWOOD: A Novel was released in 5/2011. A second novel, A RATIONAL ATTACHMENT will be out sometime later in 2019, and I am engaged in research for a biography.
