I am an Agatha, Anthony, and Lefty-nominated author best known for my critically-acclaimed Mira James mysteries, which have earned multiple starred reviews from Library Journal and Booklist, the latter calling my writing "a splendid mix of humor and suspense." I also writes sword and sorcery fantasy, edge-of-your-seat YA adventure, magical realism, and feminist thrillers. I'm a tenured professor of creative writing and sociology, a recipient of The Loft's Excellence in Teaching fellowship, a regular Psychology Today blogger, and a TEDx presenter. When not teaching, reading, or dorking out with my family, you can find me dreaming of my next story.
