About Me

I’ve worked in the entertainment industry for twenty years, from Miami to New York and points in between. My primary roles were actress and producer, but I also served as a comedy sketch writer, librettist, voice artist, propmaster, costumer, production assistant, camera operator and general dogsbody.

I turned to fiction writing in the vain hope that the performers would do as they were told. Joke’s on me.

I’m a native of Birmingham, Alabama, where I now live with my two daughters and my husband. I enjoy vegetable gardening and vintage-style sewing.
