About Me

I’m a writer, reader, and lover of things fantastic and beautiful. My primary focus is speculative fiction, and I love a good sci-fi or fantasy saga more than just about any other type of fiction (Dune and its sequels are my all-time faves), but I also read literary fiction, memoir, and anything else that grabs my attention.

I currently live in Norfolk, Virginia, with my husband, two rescue cats who have stolen our hearts, and all my other characters. Outside my fictional worlds, I work for a long-time Norfolk attorney. My favorite real-world activity is spending time in Nature surrounded by trees, birds, and other fauna.

I am a member of the Hampton Roads Writers Group and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Group and attend semi-regular classes at The Muse Writers Center in Norfolk.

My short story “Upshot” was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Writers of the Future 2018 3rd quarter contest.
