About Me

I’ve always been an avid mystery reader; writing a cozy mystery that I would enjoy reading seemed a logical progression. I enjoy learning about different places and occupations by reading mysteries; some of my best recipes come from mysteries. After graduating with a degree in English from Connecticut College, I worked at an astonishing variety of jobs as we moved around the country, finally earning an MBA at Kent State University. I landed in sales management for the custom decorating division of a department store chain. My experience in the interior design business gave me the necessary background for my amateur sleuth, Lizzie Christopher, to manage a decorating shop in Jericho. I’ve lived in many places all over the country. This is the third time I’ve lived in Ohio, currently in Evendale, a suburb of Cincinnati. I’ve also lived in Wyoming and Hudson, Ohio.

My three children are grown and gone, leading their exciting lives in other places. I am an avid gardener and flower photographer. I enjoy staying current in the field of interior design, reading articles and blogs and prowling around antique and consignment stores and art galleries. My physicist husband and I enjoy traveling and attending music and drama productions in Cincinnati. We’re frequently seen attached to the leashes of our two black standard poodles, Toby and Boo.
