Hello there!

Welcome to my little corner of the ether. This is where you will find information about my books and musings on life and love in New York City. To stay in the loop about all things ADR...


coffee date Decided to take myself out to breakfast. Wore a sweatshirt and skipped brushing my hair. Brought 4 writing books to keep me company.

Restaurant was crowded but I found a table next to a woman waiting for another woman to join her. Drank my coffee & dipped into my books. The other woman arrived and I listened in on their conversation. One was the executive director of a major literary organization. The other, a well-known playwright.

I smiled. Kept reading. They were about to leave and I did something I never do. I said hello even though they were strangers. I said something like: "It is really cool that I was sitting here. I'm a writer and working on my 2nd book."

They were so friendly. We talked for a good bit & exchanged information.

Lessons learned:

1. Get out in the world.

2. Listen closely.

3. Speak up.

I love New York City so so much, especially when these things happen.
