I’m always looking for the next great story. I can’t help it - I was reporter in my former life - covering riots, floods, earthquakes and the occasional city council meeting. Somewhere along the way, I was bitten by the writing bug.

My books are about unexpected choices and unexpected lives. People making decisions they never thought they’d make, and what happens when they do.

I’m originally from California, and now live in Connecticut with my husband. We’re both overjoyed when the kids come home to visit. I work in a library by day, write by night, and sneak out to the garden every chance I get.
