I am a native Rochesterian and an unapologetic booster of Rochester and all of New York state. A former math teacher, I am now off on a tangent of writing.
I'm happy to announce that There Are No Buffalo in Buffalo, my book of poems about places in New York State, has just won first prize in the Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Competition for middle grade/young adult books. It is available in Rochester bookstores and the Simply New York store.
My books are for sale online!
