Welcome to my Web site!

I was 7 years old when I started writing children's stories. Now I am a middle-class,
middle child, middle-of-the-roader and I write about romance, espionage and lately...
my personal battle with Schizoaffective Illness!

Originally hailing from Cottonwood, Idaho, I have worked as a legal secretary, stockbroker, a telemarketer, an insurance agent and as an administrative assistant for the Central Intelligence Agency; all of which have strongly influenced my authorship subjects and styles.

Here’s what others have said about her book:

Kopczynski’s memoir bridges two seemingly unconnected subjects – espionage and mental illness…Reading this book can become a peak experience.

          - Robert Gover, author of One Hundred Dollar Misunderstanding and Time and Money.


Clarity and veracity define Kopczynski’s memoir of her journey through the throes of mental illness and espionage, with ardent roads of lost loves. 

          - Susan Jostrom - freelance writer and editor.


Kopczynski’s memoir compliments and defines all the most daring and uniqueness of schizoaffective disorders.  But, how she relates her story is the real key in her attempt to help others cope with this illness.  Although still much misunderstood and mysterious, Ms. Kopczynski masterfully lets her story be told.

          - Abe Ferris, author of Manic or Not Here I Come.
