I'm a writer of young adult novels with a background in advertising. Playing in rock bands since I was a teen, my bands have opened up for several famous '60s and '70s acts. In advertising, I've worked with many famous people on ad campaigns, so when I started writing Overnight Sensation, the lure of fame and and rock and roll seemed to be a natural subject to write about.
My musical tastes range from classic rock (Beatles, Beach Boys, Doobie Brothers) to current music (Maroon 5, Muse, Linkin Park). I play drums, guitar, and sing. Love Coke Zero, Marvel movies, and homemade macaroni and cheese - and not in that order, and can't stand beets, brussel sprouts, or waiting...for anything.
