About Me

      I love a good mystery, from Agatha Christie to Daphne du Maurier. My dream is to move to an old house in the country, preferably one with a secret passage and/or painting with eye holes. Other interests include WWI history, Virginia, the ballet, old buildings, haunted old buildings, and Sam Cooke. 

      As a freelance writer with more than a decade of experience, I have written for Washingtonian, Texas MonthlyMental Floss, World War II, Wilderness House Literary Review, and Virginia LivingFor the past decade I have also worked as a technical writer and editor for several government contractors. As a result, I am well-versed in government editorial guidelines as well as The Chicago Manual of Style and have created press releases and other promotional materials for several companies, ranging from tech startups to non-profits.

      I have a Bachelor of Arts in English with honors from George Mason University, with a concentration in non-fiction writing and editing. I am also an associate member of Mystery Writers of America.
