MY BIO:

I am a mother, wife and attorney from Long Island, New York.  I love being a wife and mother...but an attorney?What was I thinking going to law school?!?  It truly is my one regret.  I wish I'd spent all that time and energy writing books instead of legal briefs and memoranda of law.  

However, I've discovered that it's never too late to pursue your life's passion and true calling.  I've been having fun making up for lost time.  So far, I've written five full-length novels.  My first book, "Mother," is a young adult novel about a volatile mother/daughter relationship.  It's an emotional roller-coaster ride that explores the self-destructive behaviors of a dysfunctional single-parent family.

My "Hillary" trilogy is a lot darker.  It is a deeply disturbing series that contains intense scenes of graphic violence, gore and subject matter that many find offensive.  Please heed my warnings!

I have two short stories, "Christmas Shopping," and "Crazy Old Lady," (which appears in the extreme horror anthology called "Carnage") and a novella entitled "Omerion."  
 
I am delighted to announce that I have just completed my first chick lit novel, which will be released on Valentine's Day.  Next up, a long overdue horror novel called "Expulsion" about an abortion gone very wrong
.  This year, I also intend to release another horror novella, entitled "Love You to Pieces" and a young adult novel about bullying.

No matter what the genre, I think it's important for everything I write to leave a lasting impression upon readers. I strive to create memorable characters combined with deep and thought-provoking storylines.  

But mostly, I have to admit, I really enjoy horrifying people.  I want to
shock and scare them and put all sorts of sick, twisted images in their minds.  I want to evoke strong feelings of sadness, hatred, terror, disgust and repulsion. Once in a while, I might even bring a smile to someone's face.  Mostly, though, I just prefer to horrify people.  And I think I do a pretty good job at it if I dare say so myself.  

If you've ever considered writing a book then I urge you to do so, without fear of failure, without fear of what others may think, without any fears whatsoever except the fear of not fulfilling your goals.  Just do it.  Live your dreams and don't let anyone ever hold you back.

Now go.  While you still can.... :)

 
 








Amy Leighton has always been a sensible, confident woman.  That is, until her thirty-fourth birthday approaches, engulfing her in doubt and insecurity.  With a nagging mother and a happily-married, pregnant best friend, Amy grows increasingly anxious about finding her soul-mate.

Then, as though fate steps in to offer guidance, she discovers that her incredibly handsome new coworker, Grant, is single.  But fate can be cruel.  Grant is six years younger and seems hopelessly out of her league.  Despite lingering doubts, Amy dares to believe that she might have a chance at capturing Grant's attention.  But Valerye, the flirtatious, young blonde receptionist with the perfect body, thinks otherwise.

Realizing that Amy might interfere with her own plans of conquering Grant's heart, Valerye warns her that she would be foolish to try and pursue Grant since she is way too old for him.

"Why would he want you when he could have me?...I'm your yesterday and you're my tomorrow."

At first she succeeds in shattering Amy's remaining self-confidence.  But the more Valerye viciously preys on her insecurities, the more it strengthens Amy's resolve until she agrees to accept the challenge: Yesterday vs. Tomorrow, in a bitter fight for Grant's affection.

Only some battles are never meant to be fought....





 
 




The Season of Giving

The holidays may be over, but it's always a good time for horror!

Lou Reilly grew up in a strict, oppressive environment, raised by zealous religious parents who merely wanted to protect him from the sinners of the world. Sheltered to the point of isolation, Lou is unprepared to fend for himself when his parents pass away. Bullied and tormented at his new place of employment, Lou starts suspecting that his parents were right to shield him from such harsh and hateful people.

Just as Lou begins to befriend a colleague who vows to help improve his life, he is put to the ultimate test of faith. All seems hopeless. But he won't let the sinners win. He won't burn in hell as his parents have warned.

Lou will make things right....

I am pleased to present a video book trailer for Hillary: Tail of the Dog, created by the very talented sisters, Yancy Lopez and Sofia Isabella Lopez.














 
 

“It is a place of unrelenting misery and interminable pain and sorrow.  It a place of lost hope, a dismal abyss where remorse is candy, and tears, nectar, to unforgiving monstrosities with endless appetites.” 

In life, Samuel Rylandt was a serial rapist and murderer who callously committed heinous acts with no regard whatsoever for the women he victimized.  In death, however, he will suffer the consequences of his depravity as his soul undergoes a startling corporeal transformation and he is thrown to Hell (Omerion) to complete three horrific phases of moral reconstruction. 

Samuel’s notions of the underworld are broadened as he learns that “Hell” is actually an elaborate civilization where the damned agonizingly learn the virtues that evaded them in life.

A Tale of Christmas Mayhem....


All Jilly Carson wanted to do was get a little Christmas shopping done with her best friend, Peyton. But when Peyton can’t meet her at the mall, Jilly finds herself feeling anxious and alone as her mother’s cautionary words echo in her head:

“Don’t talk to strangers. Don’t put yourself in that position again. You remember what happened last time....”

When a tall, blonde-haired stranger begins to stalk her, Jilly does everything she can to avoid him.
Feeling scared and vulnerable, she finally decides to leave the mall.

But the blonde-haired man won’t let her flee quite so easily….

'Twas a few nights before Christmas

And all through the mall,

The man followed Jilly

Lean, blonde and tall.

 

Jilly tried to evade him

She withdrew from his sight,

But the blonde man was persistent

Stalking her that fateful night.

 

He followed Jilly to her car

The poor teen was so afraid,

She'd tried her best to be careful

Now a price had to be paid.

 

The unthinkable then happened

As blood spilled everywhere,

Christmas shopping can be murder

So you had better beware.

 

Always make the best choices

You know wrong from right,

Merry Christmas to all

And to all a good fright....






 
 






I'm awesome.  My husband says so, so it must be true!  It felt really great to complete an entire trilogy in just over a year.  There were times when I was ready to give up on Hillary, but I am so glad that I didn't.  Thanks to the support of my loving husband and the encouragement of some wonderful friends (Gina, Coralie, Brenda and Sarah, to name a few), I was motivated to complete the task that I started.  

My husband always says that I've "left my mark on the world."  I don't know about that, but it certainly thrills me to know that I have made people cringe and wince and feel a full range of emotions from sorrow, fear and hatred to sympathy and even a bit of joy.  I strive to write novels infused with valuable life lessons.  I enjoy delving into the human (and sometimes inhuman) mind and portraying the many complexities therein.  

So am I awesome?  It's debatable...but one thing is certain: I am having the time of my life!






I'm thankful...


...that my family members are healthy...
...that I'm healthy too... :-)
...that we have everything that we need in life...
...that our problems are never insurmountable...
...that I have friends I can depend on...
...that I can pursue my dreams...
...that I can share my work with others...
...that I live in America, the land of opportunity...
...that I am surrounded by nature's beauty...
...that I am alive....
