I grew up in the Boston area and moved to New York City after college. I worked in book publishing for many years, wearing many hats: Editorial, Copyediting, Proofreading, and Production. Confessions of a Gay Curmudgeon is my first novel featuring Viktor, a fifty-year-old gay man trying to get back into the world of the living after the end of a twelve-year relationship. To relax, I love to ride my bike, read, watch foreign and independent movies, and travel. I’ve only made it to three continents so far but hope to visit the rest soon. I live in New York City and am currently writing a YA series about the teenage son of immigrant parents from Eastern Europe, navigating the demands of family, heritage, and teenage life in the U.S.
