...believe the hype, lol...


Since September 2012, I have been blogging about my life, whether it be about writing, personal interests, or random "brain dumps" as I like to call them. I've covered Lollapalooza, Lit Fest in Chicago, writing challenges, life challenges, even the blustery Chicago weather.


READ other samples of my work including excerpts from other books I'm writing, a memoir about my mom, and random "brain dumps." 

You can also check out the Pinterest page for my current work-in-progress: "Tame My Racing Heart." See the synopsis below.


Read my short stories performed live onstage at Mary's Attic and Mayne Stage with You're Being Ridiculous. From Holidays to Heroes to Fear. You can even WATCH my past performances!

Current Work-In-Progress:

"Tame My Racing Heart"

Tame My Racing Heart is a contemporary romance about second chance love. Sami Gentile, a hot shot female racer driver is determined to win the same race in Long Beach that took her father 20 years ago. When Sami starts receiving threatening letters and photos, her uncle and team owner hires Grayson Finch, an ex-Marine, as her security detail. The only problem is, ten years ago, Gray broke her heart. Sami promises not to be duped again, although the years have been good to Gray and she can’t stop thinking about him. And, Gray can’t deny how badly he wants to tame the woman he never quite got over.
