With 20 years of corporate America experience under my belt, I've taken creative license in parlaying many of my ivory-tower experiences into three novels...not that there's anything that corporate America doesn't want you to know about... ;-)

Background Information

Having worked in corporate America for nearly 20 years, I am continually inspired by the dichotomy between corporate America's short-term focus on meeting Wall Street expectations and their well-meaning employees who try to find purpose in the daily grind. I began my studies at Penn State as an English major, and have now combined my passion for writing with the invaluable insight that the Ivory Towers have provided.

For my recently published work, When I Fall, I was particularly inspired by the window washers who would frequently rapel past my ivory-tower window. We'd exchange looks, and I'd wonder if he thought if those on the inside of the building were any better off. And thus, When I Fall was born.

A pharmaceutical thriller set in the City of Brotherly Love, When I Fall also subtly examines the differences between the haves and the have-nots—in this case, the corporate robot in the Ivory Tower and the unassuming window washer who rappels down the building to provide him a clear view of the river. Somehow, though, our window washer, Mel Hawthorne, manages to find common ground regardless of social status wherever he goes. As Mel's sidekick, Liam, acknowledges, "My friend here is the most grounded person I know, considering he makes a living out of not being on the ground at all."
