Like my main character, Kate, my parents were unrepentant antique fanatics. Eventually they opened a shop, not because they like selling antiques but because they needed a plausible excuse to keep buying them.
After lecturing on theology for twenty-five years, I took the next logical step: devising clever ways to murder someone. I live in Ohio with my vigilant husband, Bob, and a very sweet Shih Tzu named Millie. We have two grown sons. Besides writing, I adore foreign travel, history, technology, and reading beautiful words.
