I was born and raised in New England, growing up along the seacoast of New Hampshire. I went to college in Massachusetts and graduated with a degree in gender and sexuality. I live in Tucson, Arizona where I am always writing my next book.

I'm a hybrid author. My debut novel, Monsoon Season, was traditionally published along with A Long Thaw, which I later rereleased on my own. Finding Charlie, was chosen for publication by KindleScout in 2015. I'll be releasing my fourth book, Blood & Water, before the end of 2017. I write family sagas with overlapping characters, so they're all connected.

That time of year again


 As if holiday shopping isn't hard enough, this is my ninth year shopping for products made in America. Years ago, an ABC News report said that if each of us spent just $64 on American made goods during our holiday shopping, the result would be 200,000 new jobs. I think that's a challenge worth taking.

I think Christmas is only for those who believe in Santa. As my friends kids get older, I've
