I’m a mystery writer by night, published by Red Adept and Audible.
I was born in the heart of the Rust Belt and harbor a hesitant affinity for its grit. It’s gray and grimy and covered in graffiti and, yeah, I love it. It’s the perfect backdrop for crime fiction, among other things.
Prior to moving from Northeast Ohio to Michigan’s capital city, where I live with my partner and at least one too many four-legged creatures, I was a middle manager for a motion picture exhibition corporation, a copywriter and content editor for a natural foods store, a retail buyer of nutritional supplements and health-and-beauty aids, a guitarist in a post-hardcore band called The Dread Pirate Roberts, a graduate student, and a certified projectionist. I might be a dilettante.
Now, I’m lucky to be able to do what I love–write and teach. By day, I’m an assistant professor of writing and rhetoric. Although there aren’t enough hours in the day or days in the week, I’m never bored. Which is a good thing.
I’m a not-so-closeted existentialist who writes both short and long fiction in addition to the occasional academic article, and I play a variety of loud instruments. I’m hard at work on the next book in the Liz Boyle mystery series.
I’m represented by the fabulous Claire Anderson-Wheeler of Regal, Hoffman, & Associates.
