About the Author

Although the author was born in Toronto, she was raised in Los Angeles during the golden age of Hollywood, surrounded during her youth by those movie-making icons we only hear or read about today. She has also spent many years in New England raising her children. Having a long-time interest in the justice system, as well as the psychological workings of the criminal mind, she is a writer whose imagination has surpassed convention.

This, her first novel, was completed when she moved to Florida where she now resides with her family. She is currently working on her second novel.
