I am a published author who writes in several genres including science fiction, mystery, romance and the paranormal. I have been writing for over thirty years. I actually started writing when I was a teen-ager, although I didn't submit any of it for publication. I started to write in earnest as a challenge to myself. I really wanted to see if I could write a full-length novel, not just short stories or the technical papers that was my profession in the aerospace industry. Publication finally came after many years of perseverance.
My early interest in space and working in the space industry had captured my imagination and was instrumental in writing my first novel in The Sarah's Landing Series--Sarah's Landing-I–Contact. The first book in the series was published in hardcover, soft-cover, e-book and as an audio book. The audio book won the APA award for one of the best audio books in 2001.
When the series was completed, I thought about writing a mystery novel. The mystery novel turned out to be a Romantic Suspense/ Mystery/Thriller with a touch of the paranormal. It surprised me to say the least. I didn't know I could write in that genre. That novel, which turned out to be the first in a series, has now been published, by Write Words, ebooksonthe.net, as an e-book, and in print by Cambridge Books. The other two novels in the series are now out in ebook formats by Write Words, Inc., ebooksonthe.net and will be released in print by Cambridge Books early spring.
Write Words, Inc., has also released a fourth novel in the science fiction genre in ebook format and will release that novel in print in 2007 as well.
The other three books in the Sarah's Landing Series have been contracted for with Wings e-Press, which will be out in 2007 and 2008 in e-book and in print editions.
During the course of writing novels, I have written novellas and short stories, several of which had been published and won awards. Not all were in the science fiction genre, some were non-fiction, and others in the mystery/paranormal genre. And during this time I have also co-written and co-produced a musical play, which was performed at the Merrimack Regional Theater, in Lowell, Massachusetts to a standing room only crowd.
I am a former aerospace software engineer, an Honors graduate of Fitchburg College earning a BS Degree in Engineering and Management. I also served as an officer in the Massachusetts Chapter of the National League of American PenWomen.
