My addiction to mysteries followed a familiar trajectory. Innocent dabbling with the Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew led to a craving for stronger stuff—Christie, Conan Doyle, Poe—so that by the age of twelve I had a habit that couldn’t be broken. Here’s what makes a great mystery for me: plot twists that I didn’t see coming, characters like real people I know, motivations that make sense, and a touch of humor. Those are the kinds of mysteries I like to read, so that’s the kind of mystery I write!
My first mystery novel was published way back in 2003, and I’ve been writing mystery novels ever since. In 2019, I expanded into women’s fiction, a genre that I also enjoy reading.
I live in Morristown, NJ with my husband, Kevin,
and my dog, Libby. All three of us are avid hikers.
