I currently live in Switzerland, where I work full time for the pharmaceutical industry.

I am represented by Renee Fountain and Italia Gandolfo at Gandolfo Helin Fountain Literary, New York.

I hold an honors degree in Marine Biology, a PhD in comparative endocrinology, and have spent more than twelve years in various medical and marketing roles for pharma. However, my constant thirst for knowledge in all disciplines has lead me to study history, astronomy and sociology among other things - all learned while living in various countries around the world.

My trilogy of Novellas has been combined into one novel, Children of the Fifth Sunhas been published by Vesuvian Books. It is also in development for TV/film!
