left hand up 1 B&W hi con

I grew up in Illinois and Western Pennsylvania. I graduated with a BA from St. John’s College and went on to get my MFA at the University of Pittsburgh. After this came a Ph.D. in English from Kent State University, and then a dry spell with no school for about six years before I started law school at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.  I am a licensed attorney and volunteer mediator. I have a husband, daughter, and two cats, Theo and Albus.

As far as writing goes, I’m a throw-it-at-the-wall and see what sticks writer, rather than an outline writer.  This means I revise a lot, but I also can surprise myself with new plot twists.
