I was a theatre major in college and pursued an acting career for a few years. Eventually, I moved into advertising sales in the magazine publishing business where I sold print and digital advertising and managed sales teams for companies like Conde Nast and WebMD. Ten years ago, I left media to become an executive recruiter for large and small internet companies. No matter how I earned a living, I always wrote…for me, for my friends and family. Two years ago, I left recruiting to pursue a full-time career as a writer. I’ve written three novels thus far and working simultaneously on the fourth and fifth. I am obsessed with writing, sometimes waking in the middle of the night to put pen to paper when I get an idea. Since I usually write mystery/thrillers, my process is to know the beginning and the end before I start and then fill in the middle as I go. If I do my prep right and develop my characters fully, the characters kind of write themselves.
Having recently joined the Mystery Writers of America, I attended their SleuthFest event in March 2019 in Boca Raton, FL.
