Ever since I was a young girl and my fifth grade teacher read the class Peter S. Beagle’s novel THE LAST UNICORN, I have been fascinated with all things magical, mysterious and otherworldly. I wrote my first tragic fantasy novella in middle school, recruiting art-minded friends to draw pictures of the fantastical universes I created.

After taking the road frequently traveled (not quite as romantic as the less traveled variety) and getting a BA in political science and a Masters in social work, I settled in New England. Along the way I started a family, as well as a collection of cats.

Finally, I grabbed the proverbial bull by its spiky protrustions and pursued my passion. I now write fantasy, urban fantasy, and admit to a fascination with gateways and portals, which seem to crop up in any story I write.
