“That sir which serves and seeks for gain, And follows but for form,
Will pack when it begins to rain
And leave thee in the storm.
But I will tarry. The fool will stay. And let the wise man fly.
The knave turns fool that runs away; The fool, no knave, perdie.”
—King Lear, Act 2, Scene 4. Shakespeare

For me, these writers are inspirational. How fascinating to think that appointed in the right places, words can become poetry, waiting to take flight in minds, in hearts, in psyche. There is a beauty in words, which have everlasting lives - lives that never, truly die.
Words are the melody that sing inside my heart. That rise and fall and breathe and refreshen new days like dew.
They are why I write. I’ve had a reverent love for words my entire life, and, more than anything in the world, I love painting pictures with words. I noticed there brilliant significance when I was 8-years-old.
When I'm not working as a social media and PR strategist or helping my clients in my capacity as Principal of Wright Way Social Strategies, I write thrillers, haunt bookstores, cafes, and travel internationally. My favorite spaces? Paris, San Diego, Manhattan, and my hometown, Philadelphia.
A writer my entire life, I worked for nearly 10 years at Gannett | USA Today Network as the entertainment editor for GNS, the wire service headquartered at USA Today in Va. Before that, I was a political correspondent for the world's largest news agency - The Associated Press.
Now, I write books. My first one, a text book about social media engagement, is presently in its third iteration.
My novel, Now You Owe Me, a thriller, debuts next summer!
