I’ve been a journalist, teacher, editor, and playwright. My first play was a shameless rip-off of THE MALTESE FALCON and was produced when I was 19. My short stories have appeared in Plots With Guns, Thuglit, and Crime Factory among others and in the anthologies HARDCORE HARDBOILED (Kensington Books), THE YEARS FINEST CRIME AND MYSTERY STORIES (Pegasus Books), and UNCAGE ME (Bleak House Books). In 2003 I was shortlisted for the CWA Debut Dagger. I currently work as a freelance acquisitions and developmental editor for Carina Press, the digital first single title arm of Harlequin publishing. I also offer freelance editing services for authors.
