SILJEEA MAGIC is a magical realism fantasy for young adults, about difficult families, environmental issues, and growing up. The main character, Andrea, is starting 8th grade in a new town. But she has a secret. Most people see nothing but trees and grass in the woods that line superhighways. Andrea sees the Bokaaj, small people who live in the buffer zone woods between the highway and the big new house that Andrea’s family just moved into from the Boston suburbs. But Andrea must rescue the Bokaaj when their home is destroyed by development, while dealing with a new school, overprotective parents, and a bratty younger brother. Andrea is tossed into s series of adventures that wreck her grades, mess up her health, and almost tear her family apart.

I’ve been an actor, a director, a theatre professor, and a freelance writer. I’ve studied playwriting, theatre history, and how to teach actors. My plays have been produced in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Kansas City MO, and (I love this!) Cape Town, South Africa.
Then a character in one of my plays had a new story to tell—a story that would never fit on a stage. So I wrote a novel, THE DRY COUNTRY. That was so much fun that I wrote another novel, SILJEEA MAGIC, and got it published by Black Rose Writing! You can find both novels on Amazon.
Now I’m working on another novel, also a fantasy/magical realism story. And I’m writing another play.
I live in Ithaca, NY, with a husband and three cockatiels.
