About me

Author of The Forgotten Flapper and Love Lies Bleeding.

I grew up watching old movies with my mother, and was hooked when I read “Hollywood Babylon” at about age 12. I rarely read anything that isn’t somehow historical, whether fiction or nonfiction.

I’m fascinated by the early 20th century- there was so much happening in such a short period of time– cars, wars, radio, political upheaval…so much to choose from to write about! My ultimate goal is to become the Philippa Gregory of forgotten actresses.
