I started writing in 2003; my first novel was based on a fictional character called “Juicy”. I found myself writing until all hours of the night and would often write during my lunch hour or whenever possible. I worked for a major beverage firm in Rye Brook as an Administrative Assistant and was later promoted to Coordinator.
Married, with two children – my son Courtney was a soldier in the U.S. Army and my daughter Nicole a High School student. I remember telling my family about the story I created and my hopes of having it published. At first they didn't take me seriously, but once I began sending my manuscript to publishing companies they realized it truly was my dream.
