I have always been a lover of all things fiction and a consummate daydreamer. In school I was never the honor roll kid because I was always too wrapped up in my imagination to worry about pesky things like grades. Writing gives me an excuse to take all those strange characters and weird scenes in my head and put them onto paper where they belong.

Before I became published, I worked in a restaurant, an eyeglass store, a clothing store, a hotel, a carry-out, and a chiropractor's office. Today I live in the country with my husband and two daughters (now in college). To keep me from getting too bored (ha!) I feed, water, and clean up after (my family) our two slightly ornery dogs, three bossy cats and two laidback snakes. Basically, I run a zoo.

Favorite places and things:

  • Bar Harbor, Maine (my dream home)
  • Spending time with my family
  • Movie theaters
  • Books of all kinds
  • Action and horror flicks
  • kickboxing
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • Chocolate
  • My dad's secret recipe iced tea
  • Everything my husband cooks
  • My mom's scrumptious lasagna
