Author of THWARTED QUEEN, and the THWARTED QUEEN series, THE BRIDE PRICE, ONE SEED SOWN, (published together in paperback as THE ROSE OF RABY), THE GILDED CAGE and TWO MURDERS REAPED. "THWARTED QUEEN" is extremely interesting and cleverly written-I was completely enthralled! Lucy Bertoldi, HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY.


Background Information

 I have been writing fiction for eight years, completing two historical novels and beginning two more. I started writing novels by accident, because I had a class assignment to fulfill. But once I’d started, I couldn’t stop.

I write historical novels because I’ve loved reading them all my life. When I was a child, I would lie on my bed reading Jean Plaidy’s novels about the Tudors, or Georgette Heyer’s novels about Regency England.  In reading these novels, I was struck by how different the lives of women were in the past from the way they are today.

My professional life has been multifarious and challenging. I have a PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Maryland, and have done research in cognition and perception. I’ve also been a violinist, a science writer, and a medical writer. I bring to my novels these varied experiences, as well as an old-fashioned sensibility and respect for the past.
