So, a little about me: I was born and raised in Pennsylvania and currently live in the Pocono Mountains area with my wonderfully supportive husband and a crazy dog named Max. (Yes, he was the inspiration for Sloan’s dog)
As with most authors, I’ve been a voracious reader since childhood. I began writing novel length fiction in 1997. I wouldn’t show those early books to anyone now—but writing them was how I learned the craft.
I opened a business in 2002, which effectively put an end to my novel writing hobby. But I used the skills I learned to write marketing materials for the new business. I also wrote articles that appeared in newspapers, magazines and websites; all intended to promote my business. During this time, I even started a couple of blogs just for my own entertainment.
Eventually the yearning to write fiction resurfaced. I’m of Irish heritage, which is how I became interested in Celtic Mythology. I wanted to write a romantic fantasy, so I decided to use the Celtic Mythology, specifically of Ireland, as the starting point of the story. And The King’s Jewel Series was born!
Here are a few fun facts about me:
- I haven’t always lived in Pennsylvania; New Jersey was my home for 12 years
- Before opening my business I worked on Wall Street for 21 years; 9 of which I commuted from PA to Manhattan
- Besides reading, I also enjoy photography, fashion, and music
- In 2001, I traveled with my family to Ireland where I kissed the Blarney Stone but didn’t run into any of the fae!
