About me

I was raised on both coasts and straight down the middle of America, where the cobblestone streets of Old Town Alexandria, the wild prairies and outlaws of Kansas, and the rolling hills of San Francisco inspired my thirst for history. Luckily, I was able to grow up and continue slake this passion with the best job in the world: writing historical fiction. I live with my family in Northern California with incredibly possessive and territorial cat, a perpetually disastrous kitchen, and a house full of books.
