About The Author

I grew up in Morristown, New Jersey with my brother and sister. We share treasured memories of high school, the Jersey shore and skiing with cousins in Mt. Snow, Vermont. All of which became part of April's Heart. I went to college in Washington, DC and became a teacher. I live in Virginia Beach, Virginia with my husband of thirty years. Our two boys are in their twenties making their own way in the world. I enjoy cooking (I've done some catering), my daily power walks (my preferred method of exercise), and hanging out on the beach.

Although truly fiction, April's Heart is dear to my heart as it is very personal, basically following the outline of my life. I grew up in a dysfunctional family. My mother was a difficult person, and our relationship tenuous. In April’s Heart readers relive the night I was “rescued” the very night my father left my mother, as well as heartwarming traditions of childhood and growing up in the 80’s.
