I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, hold a BA in Psychology and an MFA in Creative Writing through the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts on Whidbey Island, Washington. I have worked in desktop publishing, editing, ghostwriting, and communications before quitting my day job to write full time. During research for Harm’s Way I took classes in the ancient art of blacksmithing and harvested grapes in the wine region of Germany. My work has appeared in various newspapers and literary magazines, including Shark Reef, The Speculative Edge, Soundings Review, The Fine Line, ColumbiaKIDS e-zine, and the Mercer Island Reporter. I teach “Writing Family History” workshops, and am available for talks on 19th century history and immigration. I serve as secretary on the board of Seattle Free Lances, and am Fiction Editor for Soundings Review literary magazine.
