My memoir is about discovering connections and finding home. My reader is introduced to a birch tree standing tall and arabesque in the front yard of my childhood home. Over time, the tree becomes my buddy and first learned connection, synonymous with home. One spring morning I make a discovery under the tree that foreshadows the many disconnections that are to come. It is an inspirational story for women who feel disconnected from people, places and things, and whose deepest desire is to find a true home.
Under the Birch Tree is due out next June by She Writes Press. Brooke Warner, publisher, and her team have been a guiding force in steering my learning curve as a first-time author.
I grew up in a north suburb of Chicago and got my first job at Leo Burnett advertising agency in Chicago. I couldn’t get to where I wanted to be in the agency business, so I reinvented myself and turned to the banking industry. Realizing I wasn’t a banker, I quit and started to write. I am also a volunteer ESL tutor for adults.
