I consider myself an adventurous person, and it is this spirit that influences much of my life, not just my novel-writing journey. I’ve also run a marathon, jumped out of an airplane, traveled abroad several times, and lived in London (my favorite place in the world), Boston, California, and Oregon, though not necessarily in that order. On my first trip to Prague, I fell in love with the city. An idea for a character developed from that trip. This idea blossomed and grew into the novel as it now stands.

I love writing, reading, running, music, and curling up with a big mug of coffee or tea. I also have an adorable toy-sized Australian Shepherd named Drew. He knows some sweet tricks, but also suffers from separation anxiety.
