A native Detroiter by birth, I left the Motor City in 2001 for the Netherlands with my husband (a chiropractor) and my small children. In December of 2003, we moved again, this time to Ireland. While there, I took part in a mentorship program with the Irish author, Lia Mills, who helped me in making the transition from poetry to prose and from writing verses in poems to writing chapters in novels.
In August 2006, we relocated yet again to the Netherlands. Now, if only I was fluent in Dutch . . .
The upside of this nomadic lifestyle is that I have much more time than I would have had in the states to spend with my writing.
