I love salt more than chocolate. I'm somewhat small, yet deceptively strong. Sort of like an ant.

I'm a part time doc, full time family member, and if you offer me snacks, I'll be a friend for life.

My adult fiction debut is an historical forensic mystery, entitled A BEAUTIFUL POISON, coming August 2017 from Lake Union Publishing.

I have a nonfiction adult book written with Nate Pederson entitled QUACKERY: A Short History of the Worst Ways to Cure Everything, coming in 2017 (Workman).

And also...a new YA novel, THE NOVEMBER GIRL. Set on a remote island on Lake Superior, a girl with violence running through her veins meets a boy running away from an abusive home life. (Entangled Teen, 2017)

Well, my book tour for QUACKERY is finally over! I had a wonderful few weeks visiting Boston, Miami, Chicago, Austin, Denver, Cincinnati, Omaha, and Baltimore. I was able to see lots of friends, make some new ones, and meet lots of new readers. It was exhausting but wonderful.

Four different trips, and over fifteen flights! I saw a lot of beautiful sky.
The lovely Alyson McCandless in Chicago! ... Read more of this blog post »

“I have faults enough, but they are not, I hope, of understanding. My temper I dare not vouch for. It is, I believe, too little yielding— certainly too little for the convenience of the world. I cannot forget the follies and vices of other so soon as I ought, nor their offenses against myself. My feelings are not puffed about with every attempt to move them. My temper would perhaps be called resentful. My good opinion once lost, is lost forever.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“Till this moment I never knew myself.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

No worries! It's hard to find all my blog friends on GR and keep up. GR is a little dizzying!
