Who I Am

About Me

I was born in New York City and grew up there and in Western Massachusetts. I received my undergraduate degree and my M.A. in art history. Over the years I've worked as a lecturer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago and have taught art, art history, French, and English. A lifelong horse lover, I’ve ridden competitively and worked as a stable groom and exerciser.

My family and I now live in Rhode Island. When I’m not in front of my computer working on a new story, I’m generally to be found outdoors either riding, swimming, digging in my garden, or walking with my black lab.

Both Ride a Dark Horse and Chance Meeting, my second novel, are set in a world I've always loved, that of horses and professional show jumping. Writing about the amazing bond between horses and the humans who work with them, care for them, and love them is immensely satisfying. Being able to share that world with my readers is equally special.
