I'm a geeky Boston girl, who started writing when I was 12—mostly so that I would have something to do in math class other than math. Didn't work out well for either the story or the long division skills. Over the years, my writing's improved in ways beyond “not being in four-color pen”, to the point where Sourcebooks published No Proper Lady, my first romance novel, in September 2011. Two sequels are coming soon!
The long division, on the other hand, still eludes me.
I like exploring weird combinations of history, fantasy, romance, and (very very soft) science fiction. I have often been known to say that I come up with plots the way some people come up with cocktails: hopefully the next morning is better, though.
Oh, two of the four colors in that pen? Hot pink and turquoise. We were living in California at the time, and it was the early nineties, so I can't entirely hold myself responsible for that one.
