I wrote my first story when I was four and have been at it ever since. A graduate of Smith College with a B.A. in English, I have worked as a copywriter, speechwriter, and a scriptwriter. Now I’ve moved on to flash fiction and a novel, The Eighth Circle, a thriller, which will be published by Crooked Lane Books in January 2016. Married to an ex-political consultant, I am also the mother of three wonderful children and one lunatic cat.
