I'm originally from Dayton, Ohio, but now live near Houston, Texas, where I'm an engineer in a research lab at NASA's Johnson Space Center. I've worked for the space program for thirteen years and before that I did a brief stint in accident reconstruction. Science and engineering are close to my heart, but I also love the escapism that fiction offers, which is probably why I started writing. I’m honored to have served a term as the Vice President of the Southwest Chapter of Mystery Writers of America.
Like moms everywhere, I spend a good portion of every day taxiing short people around town and engaging in general tomfoolery. I do a variety of local runs, bike rides, and triathlons for fun. When it's time to relax, I grab a book, practice the guitar, or surf the Internet. I like to share reviews with fellow book fans at Goodreads and to connect with readers at my blog, Write It Anyway. I also hang out on Facebook , where I hope you’ll stop by and say hello.
