I have always loved to read and write. I still remember that liberating feeling when I was first able to string words together in first grade reading Dick and Jane books. It was fabulous! Years later I graduated from Manhattanville College with a BA in English Literature. I create “slice of life” stories with my children’s photo books. These are an extension of the “how-to” articles that I have written over the years. Some of the books are illustrated with my photographs and the others are illustrated with my pen and ink drawings.
