“...a series about a book club with each book centered around a different member of the club? Genius!” —Kritters Ramblings


Background Information

Everyone has a story. When walking past the houses on your block during an after-dinner stroll or driving down a rural road dotted with singular farms, have you ever wondered what was going on inside?

I have always been interested in people’s backstories. How did they get to where they are today? What ramifications does the past have on the present?

So I decided to bring a group of people together, bound only by their love of classic literature, and see what happened.

The result is The Bibliophiles Series. 

Unlike most series that follow one character through various adventures, the Bibliophiles is a little different. Each member of the Classics Book Club "stars" in his or her own novel. 

For example, the first book, A Whisper to a Scream, features overwhelmed, stay-at-home mom, Sarah, and Annie, a P.R. executive dealing with fertility issues. When they meet through the book club, each thinks the other's life is so much better than her own. But ultimately they learn otherwise.

The second installment, Until My Soul Gets It Right, follows farm girl Catherine as she bounces from coast to coast in search of her true self.

The series ends up with A Groovy Kind of Love in which uptight computer programmer Thaddeus Mumblegarden's world is turned upside down when he meets the much younger, free-spirited Spring Pearson.

Here's a little bit about me.

An award-winning journalist, my work has appeared in several magazines, newspapers, and blogs, including the Chicago Tribune, Writer Unboxed, Women's Fiction Writers, and Fresh Fiction. I'm also a member of the Chicago Writers’ Association. When not writing, I can be found on the sidelines of my youngest’s football or lacrosse games, discussing the Celts with the oldest, or snuggling into a favorite reading chair with a good book and some tea.
