I grew up in a family of actors in Los Angeles; before the age of five I started acting classes, which I adored. I continued in the family business until my early twenties when my curious spirit led me to consider other interests and professions, like executive coaching and the law. After receiving my B.A. from U.C. Berkeley, I went on to earn a M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy, a C.E.C from the Center for Executive Coaching and a J.D. from U.C. Hastings College of the Law. Although I loved learning from each of my varied careers I always knew that for me, writing was as essential as breathing. So as I pursued my professional life, I kept to a strict writing schedule, and took classes to hone my craft. I joined the Romance Writers of America and Sisters in Crime. Now Ive completed two manuscripts including my romance, The Sweetheart Deal. I have been a finalist and ranked first in several RWA chapter writing contests.I live with my wonderful husband in a house in the hills thats filled with books.
