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 Monthly, Mental Floss, World War II Magazine, Atlas Obscura, Wilderness House Literary Review, Halfway Down the Stairs, and Virginia Living. My essay "Memory and Mythmaking" received honorable mention in the 30th annual National League of American Pen Women's Soul-Making Keats Literary Competition. My feature for Washingtonian, "Meet the Guy who Bought Pat Sajak's Radio Station," was nominated for Best Magazine Feature at the Washington, D.C. Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists 2023 Dateline Awards.
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.
