More About Me??


More About Me!

I grew up in a house with a black and white, twelve inch television that required a pair of pliers to turn the channel.   The picture was always a snowstorm of fuzz. If you could convince someone to stand on the roof (bribery!) and hold the antenna a certain way, you might catch a flash of an actual show. But you might not. And it was hard to find people willing to stand on the roof. Books were a safer bet and didn’t require bribes. I read ALL the time. Once I missed my subway stop and rode the train all the way to Brooklyn because the book I was reading was THAT good!

I still read a lot but now I also write books for adults and kids. My books have spies and bad guys and messy situations. I think they’re fun. And I hope you do too. (Find all titles here.)  I live in Northern California with my husband, two kids, two cats and a parakeet named Zeus, who is sick of the cats eyeballing him like he’s dinner.
