About the Author
I write and blog about art history, architecture, and interior design. And, you guessed it, I write fiction, too. Writing and painting are my two passions. These days, my main focus (between writing projects) is to complete my painting project, entitled Images of Coney Island for a show at the end of 2016.

Created as the preliminary to an outline, I left out the ... read more

We set our alarm and were up to watch tennis, the 2017 Australian Open in Melbourne. We didn’t want to miss one stroke, from 3:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m–for two weeks.

Today’s writing addresses the question many have asked, “What do I do for my complexion?” I am not an expert, except I’ve been taking care of my skin for lots, and lots, and lots of years. It took a long time, ... read more
- Renaissance Revival: The Racquet and Tennis Club NYC1918 Racquest and Tennis Club NYC Tennis on my mind. The Australian Open begins the tennis season in January in a summer place, while we have snow and ice surrounds here in the Northeast. I’ve been involved with tennis since 1973, so I’ve seen it have those swings, pardon the pun, from hot to cold, and I’m not talking about temperature. Tennis courts so busy, ... read more
- CHARACTER DRIVENAdam&Eve Shamed by Michael, the Angel illustration by Gail Ingis in “Seeking Paradise” by Deborah Galiley Ever think about how the Bible is written? Is it character driven? What does it mean to be character driven? Well, if you know Michael Hague’s HERO’S JOURNEY (example: Finding Nemo), Father Finding Nemo you know about character driven. You must choose when writing fiction, especially romance. You must have ... read more
