I grew up on Long Island, NY. I worked for a Japanese company for many years in NYC. I studied the Japanese language at the Japan Society. In 1995 I had brain surgery to remove a brain tumor. I realized how precious life really was. I became a mother in 1999 to an amazing son. I am currently a stay at home mother. My husband Patrick is truly my best friend. I have been writing since I was a child. I've always loved poetry. I recently have become interested in writing lyrics.
