About Me

I am a writer and entrepreneur living in New York’s Mid Hudson Valley. I am the mother of two girls, one living and one…not. My essays on parenting a child with cancer and parental grief have appeared in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Parent.com, Modern Loss, GoodHousekeeping.com and (coming in January 2018), LongReads.com. I have also self-published two fantasy novels for children featuring a protagonist with cancer. I have just completed a third book and I’m seeking an agent for this one (or not – who knows?)

I also run my own business, Twelve Thousand, LLC where I focus on helping my clients drive traffic to their web sites via paid search ads on Google, Bing and Facebook. Thank you for visiting.
