I hold a BA in English from Carnegie Mellon University and an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. I taught English as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kazakhstan, the influence of which can be seen in most of my fiction and in my tea-drinking habit. When not writing, I enjoy the outdoors, softball, and having in-depth conversations about female characters. I'm a member of Pennwriters and Broad Universe.
