About this author

I’ve lived all over the world, raised in a family with eleven brothers and sisters. I spent my early childhood in Hawaii and the rest of my growing-up years trying to figure out a way to get back there, with stops in South Korea, Michigan and Germany along the way. Before writing fiction, I tried my hand at many things, including war game simulation and youth development research. But I decided it was much more fun to work on stories than statistics.

These days, I still love Hawaii, but have found my home under the moody skies of the Pacific Northwest.

I had a chance to see some footage and it looks amazing. Estimated release is early next year. (If you want to see some photos from the set, check out #nervenyc on Twitter.)

A page-turner-y suspense about an expert baker and her creepy stalker. I loved the authentic voice of Kara, her kooky mom, and snarky sister. Warning -- the baking details will have you craving cookies!

Totally delicious mystery!
