Why Write?

Because I have to. I have written stories since I can remember. I spent my days in elementary school staring out the window spinning stories. I forced my best friend to read all of them. They couldn't have been too bad because shes still my best friend. I have quit writing hundreds of times but it keeps calling me back.

What do you write?

At the moment I am trying to finish a fantasy/legal thriller novel.


I am a native Washingtonian, mother of three and of course, a lawyer. I live in Bethesda and practice in Rockville. As of August 29th, I will be an empty nester. For 25 years I wasaroomparentcarpoo­lerlitigatorchef. Whew.
