About me

Practiced law for 25 years, until exchanging my partnership in a large law firm for the writing life. I have six books published, one non-fiction, and five novels, including a three book series of historical fiction on two young women lawyers making their way in a man’s world in the 1970’s and 1980’s. My first novel, the Moon in the Mango Tree, is based on my grandmother’s story during the 1920’s,set in Siam, Paris, Lausanne, and Rome. This book won the 2012 Eudora Welty Memorial Award for fiction given by the National League of American Pen Women. I am President of the Northshore Literary Society in Covington, La., on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, just across from New Orleans. I also serve on boards of The Tennessee Williams Festival in New Orleans, and The New Orleans Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society. New Orleans and metro area are home. My novels Dancing on Glass, Chasing the Wind, and An Accidental Life are all set there in 1974-1982.
