I’m a published writer, lifelong classical music fan, an adult beginner on the violin and a former ballet dancer, returned to the studio as a student. I love all things classical. And if humor and great writing get thrown into the equation, well, I’m all over it! If you’re a reader interested in learning more about ballet or the violin, send me an email telling me what you’d like to read. This blog was created to spread the word about the arts and music and dance, and I welcome your help.
I am the author of the Ballet Theatre Chronicles series, Off Balance and Outside the Limelight, and Ballet Orphans (a prequel to the series). Outside the Limelight was named a “Best Book of 2017” by Kirkus Reviews, and my third novel, A Dancer’s Guide to Africa (Oct 2018) was a quarter-finalist for the 2018 BookLife Prize. You can find descriptions and endorsements for all four of my novels by clicking HERE or on “The Novels” tab above.
Earlier, I was back-and-forthing over my author photo. Fun, or serious? Below is my more dignified author photo that I decided on for the book’s back cover. Which one do YOU prefer? Interesting aside: the two photos were taken mere moments apart. On the one above, the wind gusted, my scarf flapped, my hair blew into my face and my mouth and I couldn’t have felt less dignified. Which made me laugh, a little sheepish, as I grabbed my hair and shoved it out of the way. Maybe it looks posed (“okay now, be free-spirited and laughing!”), but trust me, it wasn’t!
