I was born in a displaced persons camp in post WW II Germany of Latvian parents. My family immigrated to the USA when I was three years old. My first published novel, Song of Latvia, comes from my dream of telling the story of what happened to Latvia and its people during World War II. I’ve traveled to Latvia eight times. I spent my time there researching, exploring the country, visiting relatives, and attending the National Song and Dance Festival. 

I received my MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College. I’ve won numerous awards at writing conferences, been published in anthologies, have taught literature and writing as an adjunct professor, have written feature articles for newspapers and am a past President of the Philadelphia Writers Conference.
