I’m an author and editor. A native of Chicago, I grew up on the Northwest Side and joined the Navy as a medic when I was twenty. I’ve lived all over the country, but I always seem to come home. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Writing at Columbia College, Chicago, where my essay, “Bulimia,” was featured in HairTrigger 9 & 10, our student anthology, published in 1987. I live in Volo, IL, with my older daughter and granddaughter. My younger daughter and her boyfriend live downstate in Paris. She has a son and two daughters and he has two daughters as well. Back here in Volo, four cats and a bunny allow us humans space in their house.
