Informal Bio

I have to thank my Grandma for the cardboard box of books. It began a great love affair with reading, one that started with Jude Deveraux’s Temptation and has lasted through many (many many many) more stories. But it wasn’t until Harlan Coben’s one-two punch (Tell No One and Gone For Good) that I tried my hand at writing. I loved it.

I began my first novel in 2007, at the same time I began working in publishing as an entertainment writer for Pittsburgh-based Lux Magazine. After three years there, I branched off and created my own arts and entertainment website, where I’ve interviewed hundreds of authors, actors, comedians, singers, agents, editors, world-champions, power players and even a politician or two.

Books aren’t my only passion, though. I’m also dedicated to


When I’m not writing or reading, I’m walking my dogs, binge-watching comic-book movies, or eating.
