I have been writing for as long as I can remember, but didn't try to be a published author until more recently, something for which everyone should be thankful.
I was born in Berlin, Germany (when there was still a wall), but grew up in Ohio and graduated with a degree in journalism from Ohio State University. I've worked as a radio personality on a morning show and as a journalist for my hometown newspaper. Along the way, I married someone really awesome and for awhile we bounced around the country from Maine to Michigan and back to Ohio, before landing in Florida. We also had a couple of kids who have grown into outstanding human beings.
These days I live, work, and sail in Southwest Florida with a relentlessly optimist border collie, a border heeler who might secretly be the familiar of a woodland faerie queen, and an ex-pirate.
