Hi! These days you might find me combing through research for my next story. But growing up, I was an easily distracted student who began writing as a sports writer/editor for my junior and senior high schools. Sports reporting provided background for the cross country running in my story, Who Is Mackie Spence?

I graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Arts; then worked at an ad agency. Later, I moved to the west coast and have been a graphic designer and newspaper interview columnist.

Fun fact: My favorite time to write is definitely the winter. Dark days help me slide down the rabbit hole to an imagined world of character and plot.
