I’m a mid-sixties woman living in brownstone Brooklyn.  I’ve taught creative writing (with the approval of New York State) and been senior editor for a literary agency.  My publishing credits include the New York Times and a horror novel, which was conventionally published in 1992 and has been reprinted many times since.  Though I get misty-eyed every time I see the sun either rise or set, I love to laugh and have a deep and abiding respect for anyone whose sense of humor is even darker than my own.
