She wrote her first story at age 10. After graduating from Smith College she went to work writing for corporations and occasionally wrote magazine articles as a freelance journalist.
After decades in the commercial writing arena, she turned to fiction–but it is fiction based on the world around her. Many of the events and characters in her New Vampire series are inspired by her close-up view of today’s entertainment world in Los Angeles.
Recently she has taken an interest in street photography as a balance to sitting in front of her computer, writing, every day.

AFter a lifetime of working as a corporate writer, I turned to fiction and am finding I enjoy it enormously!
Tell us about your writing process.
So far in the two novels and one novella I have written I am a seat-of-the-pants writer–but combined with a general idea of where the story is going. Detailed outlining is not for me, but I do have a list of key scenes before I get too deeply into the novel.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
