I grew up in New York City with aspirations to be a world-famous artist or Broadway actress. Things change. Now I'm a writer in Dallas, Texas.
I started my writing and editing career with The Dallas Morning News, back in the day when newspapers mattered. Those were some fun times. Today I write books, which sort of still matter. And my articles and essays have been published all over the damn place.
When I'm not hunched over a computer, I love traveling; sewing; seeing live music; reading; hanging out with my husband and friends (yes, even introverts like hanging with friends); and catering to the needs of the dog of the moment, which these days is Jack, a handsome and neurotic Shepherd-Chow mix.
It's a fine life.
