Forbidden Kisses, is available on Amazon as an e-book or paperback. The second book in the Anchored Hearts series is Off Base. I’ll also be working on two books which are not part of the series – Steamy Connections and Remember Love.
My day job
I work as a dental assistant and love my work. Someday, I would love to be able to write full time. But since I haven’t reached that point in my career yet, …and a mom.
My dream job
I would love to be a driver in a car commercial. Or a television announcer… the ones that say, “Tonight on Grey’s Anatomy.” I’m told I have a pleasant speaking voice. (Too bad the same can’t be said of my singing voice.)
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, the youngest of four – one brother and two sisters. When I wasn’t playing with dolls, I spent time reading quietly. I used to think that music heard on the radio was produced by a miniature version of the artist performing inside one of the stereo speakers. Oh and I won a spelling bee in third grade. I spelled ‘miscellaneous’ and won a red life-saver lollipop.
The last book I read
Fifty Shades of Grey. That was a while ago, though. I don’t get to read nearly as much as I’d like to, but I purchased Love Me Now by Cate Tayler, One to Hold by Tia Louise and Burning Desire by Jen Talty last month. And this month I purchased Lies by Doris Parmett, Hope Never Dies by Andrew Shaffer and A Human Element by Donna Galanti.
The last movie I saw in a theater
I took my son and his friend to see Kin and really enjoyed it.
Occasionally I have a bit of writers’ block, but not in such a way that I don’t know what I’m going to write. I outline my stories, so I always know what I’m going to write. The problem for me is how I’m going to say it. I sometimes struggle with coming up with just the right combination of words. You can read about it here.
Joining the Navy
My grades in high school were okay – not great. And my SAT score wasn’t 1600, so I really didn’t think I’d get into a decent college. I was also bored with the same routine school provided so I decided to do something different. The Navy was new, exciting and adventurous.
