About Me

FIRST PLACE

SECOND PLACE

Published Flash Fiction

Hi!
Here’s me in a nutshell: I’m a writer and former actress and Toastmaster who loves travel and foreign languages. I also love dogs, red wine, potato chips, and snow skiing, in no particular order. Born in Brooklyn, New York, I lived all around the continental United States before moving to Portugal in 2012.

I’ve written two memoirs: Rabbit Trail—How a Former Playboy Bunny Found Her Way, and A Movable Marriage, as well as a novel, Slippery Slopes. All three are Royal Palm Literary Award winners. I’m inspired by the works of short story masters like Katherine Mansfield, O. Henry, and Dorothy Parker. Currently I’m writing in that genre with the goal of publishing a collection in the future.

As Portugal Correspondent for International Living Magazine, my work appears regularly on its pages. I also post weekly on Facebook’s International Living Europe and International Living Australia pages, providing photos, videos, and insight into life in Portugal.

Appearances

Conferences and More

In April 2018 I presented “Portugal: Western Europe’s Affordable Gem” at International Living Magazine’s Fast Track Retirement Conference in Atlanta.

That was followed by an IL tour of Spain and Portugal in September, when I accompanied 40 fellow participants on the Portugal portion of the trip. We explored Lisbon, part of the interior Alentejo region of the country, and the southern, beachy region of the Algarve.

November found me in Santa Fe, New Mexico for IL’s Bootcamp Retirement Conference, where I spoke about “Portugal: Why It’s Hot and Getting Hotter” before an audience of 550 attendees. Here’s what’s up so far for 2019.
