I was born on the east coast and went to Cornell University. After college I worked as a writer for Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus. It was a fun first job and I learned how to write quickly, and also that when elephants sneeze on you it's very (VERY) messy. After a year in the circus, I moved out west. I lived in Aspen, Colorado where I skied as much as possible and worked as a waitress in a Mexican restaurant. Great experience but I learned that waitressing is hard (HARD) and I'm not very good at it.

After Aspen, I moved to San Francisco, California where I worked as a writer for University of California, San Francisco and wrote freelance for LucasFilm. At UCSF I learned that sitting in a cubicle under fluorescent lights dulls my

Hi Everyone!

Happy New Year:-) Long time, I know... it's hard to blog when you're also editing (Book Two, The Key to Tartarus) and starting to conjure a new novel. But here I am, in 2013, excited to let you know what's been going on with Pandora's Key, The Key to Tartarus, and to thank all of you for your support:-) And I don't thank you lightly - you guys make writing so much fun and incredibly...

SImply put, I loved this book. No synopsis. You can go on Amazon for that. No spoilers - even though it's not that kind of book. If you want to read something creative, unique, a bit twisted, funny, dark, and poignant, then this is your book.

Thanks
