About Me

Me and a few of my favorite things – books, more books, a palm tree and a map.

I’m a writer, wife and mom – not necessarily in that order. I write contemporary romantic suspense and mysteries with a chick lit vibe, a genre I like to call “chick noir,” but I’m planningon branching out into some new genres in the not too distant future.

My “chick noir” suspense novel Thirty-Nine Again was called “a first-class mystery. . . and a first-class read” by RT Book Reviews.

I’ve also been known to write the occasional steamy romance, but that was mostly because my publisher told me to do it. It probably won’t happen again. One of those —Love Capri Style— is included in the 3WriterGals’ Sizzling Summer Boxed Set.

In my other life as a journalist, my feature articles have appeared in major daily and weekly newspapers and magazines, including The Baltimore Sun, Harford Magazine and The Catholic Review.

A woman with serious attention issues, I have, at various times in my life, been a child model, an actress, a stagehand, a secretary, a bank teller, a seller of ladies’ lingerie, a publicist, a freelance reporter, and—in a brief fit of practicality, a computer programmer.

My secret ambition is to be a Wench at The Renaissance Faire. Yes, seriously.
