About the Author

I'm a sociologist, an unconventional mom, and a singing runner (I neither sing nor run well, but I do them at the same time). Writing for me feels like following my characters around. They are very real for me and they tell me how the story goes. I ignore them at my own peril (which is to say I always have to rewrite when I get to willful and don't follow their lead).

My protagonist, Penny Wade, is a social worker. Like most social workers, she goes above and beyond the job description to help her clients. Sometimes that means tracking a murderer.

Enjoy hanging out in Boston with a crew of characters you'll come to love. When you finish the first book, follow my characters on Twitter and Pinterest until the second one is released (late winter 2016).
