About Me

Because you just had to know more…

I spent my early years longing to be an English countryside vet thanks to James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small series, and dreaming of being an adventurist archaeologist thanks to George Lucas’s Indiana Jones character. After studying veterinary pre-med and earning an anthropology degree, I realized my true passion is story in all its forms.

Now I write about friends, frenemies, and found family in my humorous and heartfelt women’s fiction; and smart women, sexy men, and adventures across the ages in my historical romance. I’m also forever plotting nearly perfect crimes for a heretofore elusive noir mystery series.

When I’m not reading, writing, or binge-watching stories, I’m often pursuing a physical challenge like studying Krav Maga or aspiring to achieve the perfect crow pose. I also spend my time drinking too much coffee, not enough red wine, and just the right amount of bourbon. I live in Maryland with my fabulous family, which includes some very spoiled rescue cats.

And now you know!
