About the Author

Author Info

I’m a Jersey girl through and through having grown up in the northwest corner of the state where green valleys are tucked between mountain ranges and livestock and crops rule instead of concrete and stop lights (we do have them, of course). But make no mistake, my favorite place is the Jersey shore. Nothing beats its sun-drenched beaches, rolling surf and found-no-where-else-in-the-world boardwalk where the sizzle of grilled Italian sausage and pepper sandwiches tries to drown out the pinging bells from games of chance. 

When I’m not writing or working, I like to garden and decorate (I have a lapsed Certified Interior Decorator certificate). I am a dark chocolate addict (who isn’t) and a fan of classic/hard rock (from Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Aerosmith to Breaking Benjamin, Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown). I’m obsessed with the movies Young Frankenstein, The Blues Brothers and The Princess Bride (which says a lot about my sense of humor) and anything starring the late Paul Walker. When the New York Rangers aren’t playing hockey, I like to watch NCIS and anything on the History Channel, and while I can and do cook and bake (I am Italian after all), I am extremely messy and have decided, at this point in my life, that it’s entirely overrated. Thank goodness my husband isn’t fussy and our nest is empty.  

Thank you for visiting. I hope you come back soon. The coffee pot is always on.
