I am a full time writer of historical fiction living in New Hampshire with my husband. I have an MFA in Creative Writing from NYU and a BS in Material Science and Engineering from Cornell University. I grew up in the middle of hundreds of acres of forest outside Ithaca, NY.
When I was in my teens, my family embarked on a project to trace our ancestry and identify our living relatives. Through church records in Sweden and Norway, we found that Harald Fairhair (Harfagr), the first king of Norway is one of our ancestors. Those explorations gave me the seeds of my first novel, The Half-Drowned King, and the subsequent books in the trilogy.
I am also an avid knitter, Crosfitter, traveler, and cook, and a reader of all genres of fiction and non-fiction, and you will see posts about all of those things on my blog.
Here is an interview I did for HarperCollins’s Genre Bending Youtube show:
