My two main jobs are wife and mother and I am happy to have both. I am a historian and former teacher but I have always wanted to be a writer. It wasn’t until after the birth of my first child that I decided to actual try to write.

My passion for history tends to focus on women’s roles. The woman behind the man is usually more interesting to me. I always wonder about the women that history didn’t record or that we know so little about.

Despite my love of history my writing varies from completely fictional pieces set in today’s world to historical fiction. The one uniting theme in all my stories are the women. I have a woman’s point of view and love writing from it.

I have a bachelors degree in history and political science. I was a teacher for a short time before becoming a full-time wife and mother. My husband and I have been together for over twelve years and we have two beautiful boys. We currently reside in the suburbs of Pittsburgh.
