Author, paralegal, former martial arts instructor, former certified nursing assistant, former bookstore manager--I've worn many hats in my life but writing has always been my greatest love, besides my child of course! I've been writing novels since I was 11 years old when one of my parents brought home an old-fashioned typewriter and set it in front of me.
My first two suspense novels, Finding Claire Fletcher and Aberration were published in 2012 and 2013. In March 2014, I released my third novel, Hold Still. In late May, 2014, that novel was acquired by Thomas & Mercer for their 2014 publication list.
My first novel, Finding Claire Fletcher won Best Heroine for the main character, Claire Fletcher and was runner-up for Best Novel in the eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBook Awards 2013. It was also selected by Digital Book Today as a Best Kindle Book of 2013 from their Weekly Featured Great Reads. In December 2013, it hit number 1 on Amazon's Kidnapping Crime Fiction Bestseller list. It has recently made the semi-finals in the Kindle Book Review's Best Book Awards for 2014. My second novel, Aberration won (tie)for Best Twist ("I've Been Shamylaned") in the eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBook Awards for 2014.
I have a Bachelor's degree in English as well as a Master of Education degree from Bloomsburg University.
I live in Philadelphia with my husband and daughter. I am a voracious reader and my previous publishing credits include freelance articles for Martial Arts Success Magazine.
