About meI'm a mystery writer and author of books on educational technology. In my "past lives" I've been a science editor, college teacher, technical writer, and corporate training consultant. I belong to the Authors' Guild, Mystery Writers of America, Romance Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime. These days I spend more time writing than I do reading, but I'm always searching for another book that's impossible to put down. I firmly believe that "When you are ready, the book you need to read will find you."

About my libraryWhew! This is tough. My house is filled with books. Most people I know are appalled by the stacks of books--read and unread. I'm sure this has happened to you: "Do you really need all these books? Haven't you read them already? Why do you buy a book if you don't have time to read it right now? Why don't you throw all these paperbacks out? What are they good for except collecting dust?"

My dream is to have a room of built-in bookshelves.
