About this author

I am a writer and a public health-y veterinarian. Rabid is my first book, and I'm looking forward to its release (from Viking Press) in July 2012.

My co-author, Bill Wasik, is my husband. We live with our son and our whippet (both adorable) in Oakland, California.

—Quiero ser tuya- respondo en un susurro entrecortado—. Quiero pertenecer a ti, Drew. Sólo a ti.”
