My life is a good example of "those who can, do. Those who can't, write about those who can." Reading, writing and an active fantasy life have been very central to who I am for as long as I can remember.

Author Biography

I live in San Francisco. When not writing or reading (and sometimes even while writing or reading), I spend a lot of time staring at the ocean and happily indulging a small group of formerly feral cats, all of whom were rescued and who daily return the favor. My published books include: Gravitas: Valkyrie in the Forbidden Zone (a unique take on alien first contact), The Falstaff Vampire Files (Sir John Falstaff, undead and misbehaving in modern San Francisco), The Bride of the Living Dead (a romantic comedy for women who love monster movies too much) and four books in the mystery series featuring Josephine Fuller, sleuth of size who doesn’t apologize.
