Hello! Thanks so much for visiting!
I began writing professionally at the age of 19. At that time, I wrote short stories for the local radio station in my home town. I gave up writing when I moved to the United States to attend college. I have since earned several degrees, including two Masters and a Doctorate in Higher Education Administration from Northeastern University in Boston. During the course of my schooling, I wrote and published a working curriculum for a career school, a business manual and its answer key, as well as other literary work. In 2010 I revisited my first love, writing for fun and enjoyment.
I live in a small town in Connecticut, where the closest thing to a mall is a shopping strip, so nothing exciting happens there. My dog Bondine is my favorite companion when I take up pen and paper to write.
Many of my stories are set in the places I've visited. My children's books are about the children I encountered and a large part about my own childhood. I love to write stories about talented, inquisitive, and curious children who are thirsty for knowledge. My own children fall into that category.
When I’m not writing children books, I write romance novels under a pen name, Ju Ephraime. Oftentimes, I take the time to visit the places in which my stories are set, that is, for me, the icing on the cake. My second love is traveling, and those times when I can combine writing with traveling, I’m usually in writers' heaven because I’m doing my two most favorite things...
