I'd love to share a bit about my life. While born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, I spent most of my youth in Kentucky - with long hot summers in Mississippi. After receiving degrees in Architecture and European history from the University of Kentucky I moved to Switzerland with her husband - a descendant of baltic barons who was born in Montreal.
I started writing with my father - he had an idea and I had a love of reading. it was a process of learning together and a time I will cherish forever. Many years later - after I continued to write for pleasure - a British friend put the pressure on to 'get published.' I was afraid she'd do it for me if I didn't take action!
From there I was extremely fortunate, meeting my agent at the Algonkian Pitch Fest in NYC and then signing with St. Martin's Press/ Minotaur.
Right now we live in Virginia with our two Jack Russell terriers, however we are taking them with us to Switzerland next year for a very extended stay!
