Hello, and thanks for stopping by! I live in Ann Arbor, MI with my husband, son and daughter. When I’m not writing or reading, you can find me playing games with my kids, cooking (and eating!) vegetarian food, hiking through local nature areas, or doting on my rescue dog. 

I hold a BA in English from the University of Michigan and a JD from DePaul University College of Law. I'm a member of multiple writing groups, including International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime. 

My novel, Trail of Secrets, was published in August 2015 by Fire and Ice YA, and was named a Finalist in the 2016 Next Generation Indie Book Awards - First Novel category. My second novel, Barn Shadows, was published by Fire and Ice YA in March 2016, and was shortlisted in the 2018 Chanticleer Paranormal Book Awards.

I now write primarily for adults and am represented by literary agent, Helen Zimmermann. I look forward to signing with a larger publisher for my adult suspense novels

I love to interact with readers, writers and animal-lovers on my Sustainable Writer Blog, and on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram!
