I’m excited to announce that Watermark has been selected as finalist in the Sarton Book Awards in the Contemporary Fiction category.

I’m very pleased to report that Even If Your Heart Would Listen is a Best Book Awards Finalist in the Addiction & Recovery category.

As some of you know, I have published both a memoir and a novel with SparkPress. Here is a recent contribution to the SparkPress blog about the similarities and differences between the two genres.

Watermark made it all the way to San Francisco!  Check out this review:

Kirkus Reviews called Watermark, “A measured, affecting look at a struggling and burdened teenager . . . tight, unembellished prose makes for an easy read and even adds a hint of mystery.”

I was interviewed about my writing career by Helene Stelian Coaching.

I was interviewed by Jean BookNerd about Watermark.

I was interviewed by Marty Moss-Coane on her show Radio Times, produced at WHYY, Philly’s NPR affiliate.
