My self-summary
I cannot be summed up in a few words.

Like the weather, I'm charged with emotions that shine like the sun and crackle with thunder.I am fueled by chocolate, caffeine and passion and the belief that if you smell great, you can conquer the world.

I'm very sensual, guided by how things feel, smell and taste. I love the smell of the ocean and the feeling of sand between my toes. I have a cat and love the softness of her fur and how her body rumbles when I pet her. My favorite perfume is Ange ou Demon.

I'm originally from NY, and I'm a big Mets fan.

I am pro-union, pro gay-marriage, pro-choice and since I come from a family with generations of teachers, very pro-teacher. I have great compassion for the poor and disabled and I'm drawn to those who have warmth and compassion as well.

I'm a quirky, nocturnal type of person. I love to make people laugh and I have a wicked sense of humor. I'm a bit of a geek when it comes to new tech, toys and languages and an unrepentant chocoholic.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a fiction writer and my first novel was published in October of 2013. At night I'm usually writing or chatting on AIM or YM. Music, research and languages are my major interests.

I just got an immersion hand blender so I'm becoming very interested in cooking things from scratch, especially soups and cooking with specific spices.

I'm also having fun experimenting with different Mac applications that let me be creative with web-design and photography without having to be an expert in each.

I really love sci-fi and fantasy and enjoy going to cons.
I’m really good at
writing, being empathetic, listening, cooking, researching anything, reading body language, telling jokes, 80s music trivia, recognizing accents, having perfect pitch and having an ear for languages. I'm a language geek.

I can greet you in several languages...though past that, not so much.

I'm also a decent singer if you ever want to go for karaoke.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably a tie between my freckles and green eyes. and my smile that make my cheeks even more rosy. They may also notice that I'm playful with a hint of mischief and never, ever, boring.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite authors: Poppy Z. Brite, Octavia Butler, Joan Vinge, Tanya Huff, Jacqueline Lichtenberg

Favorite types of books: vampires, mysteries, thrillers Sci-Fi, Fantasy. The last book I read was Never Let Me Go.

My taste in movies is all over the map with Never On Sunday being the biggie.The Princess Bride, Annie Hall, The Lost Boys, The Big Easy, Paper Moon, Near Dark, and Radio Days, Head On, Fiddler on the Roof Small Change ,foreign movies, indie movies and documentaries. But I also like silly movies like Blazing Saddles and National Lampoon's Animal House. And that's not even counting the anime.

I love to see comedians. Right now my favorites are Russell Brand, Russell Peters, Jim Gaffigan, Ralphie May and Gabriel Iglesias and I have a soft spot for New York comedians.

Favorite TV shows wax and wane but for now they are: The Vampire Diaries,Torchwood, Doctor Who, How I Met Your Mother, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. , I'm also a big fan of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

Lately I've started watching the Food Network and the cooking shows like Chopped. I'm growing more interested in cooking, I try to cook when I can. I have a great accomplishment after I've cooked a dish.

Music is a very important part of my life, my taste is eclectic, everything from electronica to alternative to world music to even country if I like the song. I especially love music with a heavy beat. Forget about Guitar Hero, if they had a video game like "Drum Hero" I'd definitely play.

One hit wonders are a guilty pleasure and the 70s and 80s were full of them. I'm into indie music right now but I'll always love Morrissey and The Smiths. Same with David Bowie (before he met and married Iman). The Beatles The Rolling Stones and The Velvet Underground as well. Finally, I have a special place in my heart for Nirvana and Dave Grohl which is why I also love the Foo Fighters. Strangely enough, I saw Radio Daysby Woody Allenand discovered I actually like some of the big band and swing music of the 30s. Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw - who knew I'd enjoy it? And lately because I saw a documentary of Irish music in the 60s - 80s, I'm into the Boomtown Rats. U2. Van Morrison Planxty and Rory Galagher.

As for food: I love Italian, American, Mediterranean, Chinese, Pan Asian - especially anything with noodles and Japanese - no sushi though.

And of course, the chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
1. chocolate 2. my laptop with net access, 3 my cat Contessa 4. my iphone 5. my TV 6. Lipstick
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a more disciplined writer. Being better organized. What makes people tick, why do they do what they do?

That the reason why reality TV shows do so well is that the viewing public has become a nation of voyeurs watching people live life for them.

Why does it always rain when I forget my umbrella?

Why is there a cloud of fur the moment I open the dryer? Why does black fur always cover my white clothes and white fur always cover my black clothes? And this is the same cat!

How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll Center of a Tootsie Pop?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm either online, writing or working but I also like going to movies and just hanging out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A lot of the songs I've heard lately have been from TV ads and shows. It exposes me to new bands and I love it.
