    No one can burst the bubble of my dreams, still a hopeless believer, uncanny writer, obsessive lover and as crazy as your whacked up imagination...

    I grew up in Woodside, New York, the child of an artist. I always loved to write and draw. I published a short story "Good Help Is Hard to Find", a spooky story fashioned in the style of my favorite author Stephen King. I love writing poetry - it's so freeing to get your emotions out on the page!
