I am a novelist, essayist, and former standup comic. Of all things, I love to create entertainment; but when I’ve shut my laptop for the day I love to be entertained. Make me laugh, scare the crap out of me, it doesn’t matter; just take me away to another world, and I will try to do the same for you.

My debut novel, The River at Night, is about four women friends who embark on an ill-fated white water rafting trip in the Allagash Territory of Northern Maine. It was published by Simon & Schuster, Gallery/Scout Press in January of 2017. My work is represented by Erin Harris at Folio Literary Management.

I am hard at work on my second novel, a survival thriller set in the Amazon about a rough-and-tumble American girl who escapes the foster care system by traveling to Bolivia. There she falls in love with a local man and follows him to his lush jungle village, only to have her new found happiness threatened by a mysterious illness and the warring tribe that holds the cure.

I have been a ghostwriter, editor, and screenwriter. I still enjoy writing humor pieces and comedy whenever I have something funny to say. My work has appeared in Salon and The Boston Globe, as well as on National Public Radio. My novel, Repeaters, has been optioned for film.

I live with my husband, George, who puts up with my every cranky writer hissy fit, and my cat who just ignores me, which might be (is) the best response. I am in love with my family and friends, the startling beauty of the natural world, and the wonders that lay half hidden in everyday life.
