I am a native of France, born in the city of Nancy, in Lorraine. I was a little girl in WWII but retain vivid memories of those horrible days. At age 19, I married an American GI and followed him to America. We had two sons but the marriage ended in divorce. I worked as an accountant for many years, then as a realtor. My minor in school was Art and Interior Design so, being a Gemini, mixing accounting and art was no problem.

I now am very happily married and live in Ooltewah, TN, a stone throw from Chattanooga. My husband Kevin, a foundry engineer, and our little Yorkie Lucas, enjoy our home in this beautiful city.

I have always loved history and writing, so of course the first novel I have published is an historical novel,entitled "In Pursuit of Abraham." It is actually based on the true story of my grandfather.

Idled by the war he decided to write a novel about the Jewish heroines of the Old Testament. His research lead him to synagogues in Paris, and the German SS thought he was a Jewish sympathizer and began to pursue him.

For his and my grandmother's safety he decided to leave France and go to the Middle East to complete his research. He actually did follow the footsteps of Abraham and his clan, and left me his never published manuscript.I have translated and incorporated several pages of the book he wrote in 1943 into my novel. Of course the protagonist in my story encounters a much different experience once in the Middle East.

I am so happy that now, 70 years later, some of my grandfather work is being published. Pretty neat having a co-author who wrote 70 years ago, on a different continent and in a different language, don't you think?

This is not a religious book, but as you follow the life of Abraham and Sarah

you are reading the exact words written by my grandfather.

I'm now working on a sequel, not yet named. I've also published several blogs on the internet, and published a short story in a book entitled "Projects Keepsake."

When not writing, I enjoy painting in several media (visit my website to see some of my art work. I also enjoy cooking (French cooking, of course.)and knitting, traveling, and interior design. Love my life!

I am also a pilot and love languages.

Please visit my website and look at some of my blogs. A very popular one is the one I have written about the history of French cooking. While there, take a look at my art page where some of my art is showcased. I welcome your comments: Thank you.
