I’ve lived pretty much my entire life in Nashville, Tennessee, with the exception of several years in North Carolina, and a little while in Europe. I’ve been a doctor, I’ve work ed in the business/tech world, and I’ve always loved reading and writing. Sometimes I write about being a doctor. Sometimes I write about being a mother. Sometimes I write stories that are completely made up. My husband is a singer-songwriter, so occasionally I write songs.
I wrote a book for young adults called Snow in Sicily, inspired by my Sicilian family, most of whom I never met. After my father died in 2012, I was going through old family pictures, and I decided to tell a story about them. It’s the story of a girl who goes to Sicily for a summer job and returns with a greater appreciation of her family and the life-altering experience of travel.
Currently I’m sharing my love for learning with my kids, and in my free time I’m working on children’s picture books. My first one is called Bartleby. Any proceeds from my creative projects go to a non-profit that my husband and I founded in 2011. It’s called Remember Me Mission, and it exists for the purpose of supporting orphaned and abandoned children around the world.
