Bio:

My first novel, Unholy Angels was written over a two-year period and, in part, in some very unlikely places such as line-ups at deli-counters and cash registers, and doctor and dentist waiting rooms. While I was out running errands, I jotted down scenes for the story in a notebook I toted around in my purse, and then typed them up when I returned home.

Writing novels is what I have wanted to do since I was ten-years-old and undertook to write a book based on my beloved Nancy Drew mysteries. As I grew older, I continued to read mysteries but I found that as much as I enjoyed attempting to solve the puzzle, I became enthralled whenever a new development occurred in the romantic relationships of the characters. When I thought of writing Unholy Angels, I knew it would have to be a romance.

Bio:

(from the author website)

I was born in New York City and moved to Indiana, Ohio, back to Indiana, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I was the always the new kid at school, attending nine schools in 12 years including four different high schools.

Wherever we moved, one thing was a constant—we always lived near a library. Books were the friends that never said goodbye and great companions on long, dusty U-Haul trips from one town to the next. Each new apartment or house became home once the books were unpacked.

I was a petty thief as a child, a skilled liar, a card cheat and a Girl Scout. My siblings and I weren’t allowed to watch TV, listen to anything but classical music, or eat junk food so of course we did all three in spades.

After high school, I attended two small colleges before graduating from Penn State with a degree in Journalism. I married and settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but the wanderlust has remained. I’ve traveled to countries I read about as a child–the Cook Islands, Egypt, China, and Turkey among others. I’ve also had the good fortune to live for a time in Qatar, a country I came to regard as a second home.
