About Me

I write contemporary commercial fiction featuring heroines who wrestle their emotional baggage while maintaining a sense of humor.

I’m an active member of the Author’s Guild, Women’s Fiction Writer’s Association, and the Pacific Northwest Author’s Association, where my books have twice been recognized as contest finalists. I hold a certificate in Popular Fiction from the University of Washington, as well as a BA in English from Whitman College and a Master’s in Library and Information Science, also from the University of Washington. My current day job is in local government, but I’ve also worked as an academic librarian and freelance pop culture writer.

My hobbies include barely running (I’ve completed ten half marathons, slowly), cooking and baking, hiking, and attending live theater. When I’m not writing, I can often be found cozied reading, eating fancy cheese, shopping for fancy cheese, or cooking with fancy cheese. I live in the Seattle suburbs with my spouse and two high-maintenance cats, next door to my sister and her very silly dog. My love language is jokes.
