I was born in England and grew up near Boston, Massachusetts. With a doctorate in English, I taught at CUNY and then spent many years writing for corporations, creating books on network management systems, virtual protocols, and military surveillance software. (Who knew!) But during those years, writing books and stories, especially fantasy, mystery, and science fiction, was my passion.

My short stories have appeared in Thrice Fiction, Kzine, Mad Scientist Journal, Over My Dead Body!, NewMyths, Aurora Wolf, and T. Gene Davis’s Speculative Blog, among others. I have also been a ghostwriter, published a book on environmental management, and created an online workbook on soul development for the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach. In the spring of 2012 I was a finalist in the Hollywood SCRIPTOID Screenwriter’s Feature Challenge for my script about a mother seeking the disabled child she had abandoned, in “Second Chances.” In October 2016 my book "MARI" was a finalist in the ListenUp Audiobook competition.

When not writing, I follow my fascination for reading mysteries, watching film noir and 1950s science fiction B-grade (often C-grade) movies, visiting Neolithic sites, absorbing biographies of writers like a sponge, and feeling reverence for all wildlife. I also have a brilliant green (and talkative) eclectus parrot named Harry.

After working on both coasts, in Texas, and overseas, I call the historic and beautiful Hudson River Valley region home now, and it pleases me no end to live not very far from where Rod Serling grew up and Jane Roberts encountered Seth.
