Pilgrim, writer, photographer, mom, author of A Marshmallow on the Bus, Prayer Beads on the Train, and Waiting on a Platform. I am also a performing artist in the NY Transit Museum Platform Series and a contributor to the anthology, Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Paradox,  edited by Joanne Cronrath Bamberger.

I like to tell stories. I write poems, short fiction, essays on family history, and my view of living in a big city after growing up in a small one.

I have a particular fondness for the Camino de Santiago in Spain and I've included some writing about it in Prayer Beads.

Thanks for stopping by the shop today!
