I spent my early years longing to be an English countryside vet thanks to James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small series, and dreaming of being an adventurist archaeologist thanks to George Lucas’s Indiana Jones character. After studying veterinary pre-med and earning an anthropology degree, I realized my true passion is story in all its forms.
Now I write about smart, adventurous women and the sexy, intriguing men who love them in my historical romances; explore the bonds of friendship and family in my women’s fiction books; and am plotting the perfect crime in my first mystery, a Nordic Noir set in Copenhagen.
When I’m not writing, reading, or binge-watching story, I’m often pursuing a physical challenge like training for a sprint triathlon or aspiring to achieve the perfect crow pose. I also spend my time drinking too much coffee, not enough red wine, and just the right amount of Bourbon. I live in Maryland with my fabulous family, which includes some very spoiled rescue cats.
