About me

Industry Education
Occupation Adjunct English Lecturer, Editor, Writer
Location Spring Mount, PA, United States
Introduction Editor, Empty Nest online magazine. Teacher, writer, and editor, after 30+ years in publishing. Married, with a handsome husband, two gorgeous grown daughters, and one wonderful son-in-law. My happiest moments are spent with them, friends, and extended family. I'm currently an adjunct English instructor at Montgomery County Community College (PA). I own Spring Mount Communications, a small umbrella company for writing, editing, photo research, light graphics design, and publishing project management. Publishing my ezine Empty Nest is my joy: It allows me to collaborate with other empty nesters while writing memoir, working with both amateur and professional writers, meeting people from all over the world, and just doing what I Iove.
Interests Reading (mainly nonfiction). writing (memoir, poetry), guitar, sailing (especially racing our Thistle), hiking, rock climbing, and dance (swing).
Favorite Music Depending on my mood, an eclectic mix of jazz, classical, new age, folk, and rock
Favorite Books Thoreau's <I>Walden<I>, and too many others to mention here. I read mostly nonfiction: memoir, psychology, sociology. Lately I am also renewing my early interests in poetry and literary fiction and am looking forward to reading a lot more of it.
