One-Line Bio

A travel writer turned GlamMa and willing to spill the beans on Grandparenting.


Creative projects have taken me in directions I would never have imagined. The travel book series, Born To Shop, came to life as a travel diary, chic-lit style.

Bantam Books made it into a series and two of us stuck with the project long term, We traveled the world reporting on where to find everthing from Couture to flea market to designer discount. Some of the unique, funky, fun, and unusual items we found are still in my home.

But I wasn't always a fashionista. After graduating college, I pursued a career as an actress in New York City. I hung out at Joe Allen and did stints off and on Broadway. While shooting a commercial, I met my husband. We consequently moved to Los Angeles had two darling children, and the Born To Shop series was born.

I then became a Travel Writer for Pittsburgh Magazine where I wrote a lifestyle-with-a-twist column in which I shared the funny/fun adventures of a Glam Gal baby boomer, Glam-Ma willing to go anywhere and try anything (sort of) at least once. Now that my GlamBabies are old enough I travel the world showing them the wonders of other cultures and ways of life. Of course there is always the fashion and cuisine!

I hope you all enjoy and send me feedback.
