Bigger than a breadbox, but not by much. Also, really loves bread.
I write strong yet relatable heroines, flawed but redeemable heroes, and the occasional villain you'll love to hate. I like to subvert tropes to create original ways of looking at the familiar. Common elements in my stories include intriguing settings, art and architecture; exploration of immortality (both literal and figurative); hiding symbolism in plain sight; ending chapters with kick-ass cliffhangers; and centering girls who rescue themselves. I also wrote three books with hot Italian heroes!
Published by 2 of the BIG 5. Wrote on spec for Legendary Pictures, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Simon & Schuster. Numbers person at a Uni. Art historian in a former life.
