About @teethetrav

Female • Writer

I am an author, a traveler, a cook, and a mother. I write novels, screenplays, travel essays and poetry. I teach, I cook, I share, I entertain. I'd love to hear from you and hope you will leave behind comments.

My latest novel is called INTENTIONS. Inspired by actual events, an excerpt is published in the anthology OF BURGERS & BARROOMS. When an introverted bartender discovers three tiny skeletons in a trunk in her grandmother's attic, it upends everything she believed about her family.
My previous novel HARDSCRABBLE WAY is available at I have published poems and travel essays. I have attended writing workshops and courses at a castle in France, the Rocaberti Workshop, at NYU and Gotham Writer's Workshop in New York City. My favorite was a writer's workshop in Tuscany called Il Chiostro where I worked on two novels which are set in Italy: GRACE IN MILAN and SIENA SUMMER which will be available soon.

I have completed a screenplay called THE CONTESSA'S VINEYARD which is also set in Italy. Jewel Harper is spending a month at a retreat in Tuscany with wacky artists and writers. She's trying to write a novel but distractions keep interfering. Wine tastings, wild boar, the Contessa, her new friend's internet affair, and—oh, yes. There's that chef she meets in town...Interested?
