I love to write, to create stories that entertain, that provide an escape, that touch readers and possibly make them think or reassess or rediscover. I endeavor to create characters that become friends, with whom readers can relate, characters that make you care about what happens to them and who linger with you long after you put the book down. My last two novels, What Remains True and All That’s Left of Me from Lake Union are stories of domestic suspense. I’m honored that What Remains True was chosen for the Kindle First program and has gone on to become an international best-seller. I have three humorous women’s fiction novels, Something New and Sweet Nothings which were published by Penguin USA, and Say Never, which was chosen by Chick Lit Central as one of the best books of that year. My short story The Mighty and Me was featured in the Southern California Writers’ Association anthology It’s All in the Story. My next novel, Finding Grace, will be out in late 2021. I have a terrific hubby and two amazing teenagers, plus a couple of crazy dogs I adore. I live in Southern Cal, and when I’m not writing or fulfilling my PTA duties, I love to play tennis, sing with my sister, and throw lavish dinner parties with outrageous menus.
