I'm a lover of sushi, busting a move on the dance floor, and knitting. One of my first jobs was at a library, but it didn’t last long, because all I did was hide in the third-floor stacks and read. Now I'm a little more careful about when and where I indulge my reading habit. By day I'm a high school English teacher, by night I'm a wife and mom, and I find any time in between to write. My words are almost always created with the companionship of the world’s cutest dog, Radley, a big cup of coffee, and a full bag of gummy peaches. I live in Cleveland, Ohio, but dream of moving back to Boston, the city I fell in love with while attending graduate school there.
