I was born and raised in New Jersey, the daughter of a scientist and a stay-at-home mom who was greatly interested in the arts. Because of that unique combination, I grew up surrounded by music and theater and by discussions of evolution and chemistry–a true liberal arts education!

That education continued when I moved to Boston. Deciding to concentrate more on the arts than the sciences, I earned a BA in English at Boston College and an MS in television broadcasting at Boston University.

Like my own mother, I was a stay-at-home mom (to two wonderful sons) for a few years after graduating. But then I discovered I could freelance for local newspapers, a situation that gave me the best of two worlds.Although my sons are now grown, I still enjoy the freedom that freelancing gives me.

My writings have appeared nationally and in such local publications as Gulfshore Life, Times of the Islands and Naples Health . I also do considerable writing for not-for-profit organizations. In 2001, I was chosen "Writer of the Year" by the Florida Magazine Association. I am also a field producer for WGCU Public Media, having worked on such shows as Arts Edition Prime Time, Connect! and MAKERS: The Women Who Make Southwest Florida.

Keith Raygor’s earned reputation for his world-class close-up magic combines his wink of an eye, smiles and laughter with the imagination of the showgoers. But it’s his stage show “The Musical Mindreader” that’s had audiences astonished across the US and Europe. As you think of songs, Keith performs those songs, without you uttering a single lyric or note. Only Keith performs this extraordinary feat. It merges music, magic and mindreading with a wonderful finale you’ll never forget!

These conform to the sustainable fashion movement by creating one at a time to avoid textile waste which is a major contributor to environmental pollution.
