I'm a woman from Newark, NJ.  Later, I lived in California, DC,  Italy and Ireland - and now, for a long time, NYC.  I work as a writer, actor and nonprofit professional.

I've been a teacher in women's prisons, high schools, colleges, Japanese banks and young men's detention centers. One of my nonprofit executive positions was heading The Creative Coalition, a non-partisan policy advocacy group of leaders in the entertainment industry.

I am at work on Hot Sun, Cool Fire, the working title of a literary nonfiction book set in an unknown, 'cursed' town in the isolated mountains of Tuscany
