About me

When I was 12, I told my mother I wanted to be a novelist when I grew up, to which she replied that I should find a “real job” in the meantime. Twenty-some-odd years later, after pursuing graduate degrees in science and business, I eventually returned to writing when I became a mom.

I have managed my own freelance writing company for the biotech industry for several years now and have published many manuscripts in peer-reviewed medical journals, as well as several industry articles.

Now, I’m revisiting fiction – trying to weave together my interest in writing with my lifelong loves of history and reading. My all-time favorite author has to be Jane Austen, but I currently enjoy Diana Gabaldon, Phillipa Gregory, Alison Weir, and countless others.
