About Me

I was born a Connecticut Yankee, but moved every few years throughout my childhood and adolescence. After college in California, law school in Massachusetts, and a mercifully short stint in a large San Francisco law firm, I moved to Los Angeles, where I met my now-husband, who hates L.A. We eventually settled in Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University.

I have been a voracious and compulsive reader as long as I can remember. I was an English and American Literature major at Stanford University, which suited me, although I have in recent years developed some doubts about whether studying literature is, for most people, a good preparation for enjoying it.

My "voice" is the product of almost five decades of reading both literary and genre fiction. It is no doubt also influenced, although I hope not fatally tainted, by my years of practicing appellate law. My personal history has led me to focus on themes of family, communication, the impossibility of controlling events, and the persistence of unfinished business.
