About me

I was born in Baltimore but I keep moving westward. I’ve raised children, worked more than a decade as a registered nurse, taught skydiving, studied history, and sailed many nautical miles with Bob, my husband.

I first knew I wanted to be a writer in second grade. But then again I wanted to be a lot of things — including a musician, an actress, an oceanographer, a horse trainer, a dancer. I still do. The cool thing about writing is you can be anything you want, you can change careers whenever.

Star-Crossed (Knopf; 2006) was my first published novel, followed by Surgeon’s Mate; book two of the Patricia MacPherson Nautical Adventure Series (Fireship Press; 2011). Barbados Bound (a revised Star-Crossed, now out of print with Knopf) will be published in 2012 by Fireship Press as book one of the Patricia MacPherson Nautical Adventure Series. I’m working on book three of the series, which I hope will be published in 2012.
