Author's Bio

I was born in England but have lived in California for over 35 years. After a successful career as a nurse practitioner, which included publication of academic articles in peer-reviewed journals, I am now focused on creative writing.  WHEN IT’S OVER, my debut novel published by She Writes Press in 2017, is set in Europe during WWII, and is based on my mother’s story as a refugee from the Holocaust. It has been recognized as a Finalist in six awards, including the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award, the Next Generation Indie Award, and the Sarton Women’s Book Award.  I am currently working on my second novel, set in contemporary California.
