I write cutting edge, fast-paced stories full of adventure, fantasy, suspense, and romance. These things have always been part of my life as, living with a test pilot husband and two active sons, I learned to fly, dive, and survive bodily torture for fifteen years as a black belt in Kenpo Karate (trained by Robert Vanelli). I knew writing lay in my future since teenage days when I took creative writing classes and wrote high school sports news for the county paper.
I’ve been published by Kensington Publishing Corporation. I’m a member of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and SpacecoasT Authors of Romance, Washington Romance Writers, and Kiss of Death RWA chapters.
I’m a hydrogeologist by training with an M.S. in geological sciences and have taken further engineering graduate courses in California and Ohio. I’ve taught at a university, worked on a military project related to computers and aircraft flight testing, worked as a design engineer for a civil engineering firm, and have done computer modeling and field studies as a hydrogeologic consultant. I’ve studied in England and Italy, traveled to South Africa, Egypt, and South America, and still travel to places of interest all over the world so I can make my books richer.
