Wow, you clicked on my about page. I’m so flattered! Here are some facts about me. 😊
I come from a family of readers. My parents enjoyed Agatha Christie and Stephen King and they were some of my early favorites too. As I grew older I retained my love of traditional mysteries, but also got into fantasy, science fiction, and adventure stories of all types.
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, in a suburb of Tacoma Washington. And I studied Business Administration at Washington State University, and later on, Organizational Psychology at Antioch University. After a decade working in HR, I started a management consulting firm, which I still own today.
Because I love business and all the human drama that goes along with it, my first three novels were set in the modern workplace. And while the characters and stories are pure fiction, the setting was inspired by the years I spent working at Pacific Medical Centers in Seattle. Although it should be noted that I had wonderful bosses and no one was murdered. Thank goodness.
I’ve always enjoyed writing, but I’m a newbie at being an author. In early 2018 I decided to set up this website, and to treat my “second career” with the seriousness and care that it deserves. That’s how I find myself here, writing an “about the author” page and hoping it doesn’t sound pretentious.
To round out this page, here are a few random facts about me:
- I love coffee almost as much as Kat Voyzey does
- My Hogwarts house is Ravenclaw
- I adore terrible monster movies, including the Sharknado franchise
- I married my high school sweetheart, and as a result I believe I’m the luckiest woman on Earth
- I love Twitter, and I tolerate Facebook
- Futurama and Rick and Morty are my favorite cartoons.
- I once traveled all the way to Wales to visit The Dr. Who Experience
- My goal for 2018 is to read at least 75 books
By the way, if you’d like to exchange book recommendations, friend me on Goodreads. Thanks!
