My love of history has led me to write historical novels for adults and teens. I love to bring history to life, especially when it involves strong female heroines whose passions lead them to extraordinary acts of courage.
As a music historian with a PhD from Yale University, I am at home in the bowels of a library. As a once-young girl who immersed herself in books, I am equally at home in the pages of a well-written novel.
I now live in Northampton, Massachusetts with my partner of 30 years and my dog Betty, and I write and edit for a living.
