Welcome....from my desk to yours


I am an American novelist and nonfiction author who began my career as a newspaper reporter. My books include Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women's Literary Society: A Novel (Atria Books/​Simon & Schuster) and the 1993 nonfiction hit, Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years.

I am currently under contract with Atria B00ks/​Simon & Schuster to write a sequel, Miss Dreamsville and the Lost Heiress of Collier County. Publication is scheduled for September 1, 2015.

I do a limited number of manuscript and publishing consultations for private clients each year. I am, also, a very experienced public speaker, panelist, and workshop leader. Please visit the Invite/​Contact page for more information.
