I’ve loved words ever since I read 103 books in Miss Vopelensky’s first-grade class. That’s when I first dreamed of becoming a writer. My dream came true many years later when my first book was published at the age of forty.

Now after more than a decade away from publishing I’m thrilled to be back and writing again!

I write in several genres—what can I say? The ideas come fast and furious from all directions. In 2022, the book of my soul, my memoir, Good Girl,  released—the most transparent and vulnerable book I’ve ever written. My latest book, Death of a Flying Nightingale (releasing in September 2024), shines a spotlight on an overlooked group of WWII women heroes—The Flying Nightingales—who risked their lives flying into combat zones to evacuate the wounded. It was my great privilege and honor to interview the last remaining Flying Nightingale for my historical fiction debut. More to come!
