When I told my dad that I wanted to write, he told me that writers don’t make any money. Paid for or not, the words still have to be put to the page. And so… I’m a writer with a day job and split my time between the characters in my head and the ones I work with at a holistic veterinary hospital. When the computer is off, I’m hiking or snowshoeing with my dogs or if it’s summer, kayaking on one of New England’s beautiful lakes. I am a member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance and NH Writers Project. I received an MFA degree from Goddard College in Vermont and currently live in New Hampshire with my husband, our German Shepherd, one bossy Beagle and a grumpy, old cat.
