Bio

I write and draw comics, and also do illustration. I am a member of the Brooklyn-based webcomics collective ACT-I-VATE, and I post my webcomic UNDERWIRE the fourth Saturday of each month on www.act-i-vate.com.

I am also working on a graphic novel about my life and my experience with breast cancer, to be published by Top Shelf.

My illustrations have appeared in advertising, educational materials, and children's magazines. I have illustrated three children's books, including Liberty Cafe is Open! by Marcia Trimble (Images Press, 2007).

Post-college, I worked as a writer, publishing pieces in Cosmopolitan and the New Jersey newspaper U.S.1. I also won a 1990/91 Fellowship for Fiction from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State.

I grew up in New York City, watching people and drawing them. Summers I spent sprawled on the couch reading Archie Comics. As an adult, I rediscovered comics after a bout with breast cancer. Graphic novels had come of age, and I saw that--for me--this was the perfect combination of writing,drawing, and storytelling.

I live in an old barn in Central New Jersey, with my husband, two children, four cats, and the dog.
