I’ve been writing since the age of twelve and making up stories for as long as I can remember.

 

As a kid in the Bronx I kept my friends enthralled with fake adventures I pretended to have experienced. In middle school (junior high back then), I submitted book reports on fiction I created in my head. Gave them titles and authors. Never got caught. Under my photo in my high school yearbook next to “Ambition” it read “Writer.”

 

Marriage, children, and a wonderful career, first as an academic administrator and then co-owner of The Osborne Group consulting and training firm, sidelined serious writing. Until one day Kara, my protagonist in my first novel, began speaking to me.

 

I wrote the first draft of Getting It Right (Akashic Books) on airplanes, in the Delta Sky Club, and in hotel rooms around the country and the world. 

 

Next came Tangled Lies (Black Rose Writing), 2021. Grateful for new and returning readers. 

Reckonings (Black Rose Writing) releases June 16, 2022 -- e-book, paperback and, I'm excited to say, audiobook. My first.

 

A native New Yorker, Bob and I have two grown children and three grandsons. We now live in Port Saint Lucie, FL.
