Nice to meet you,
A few truths about me. I'm relentlessly curious, and happen to love everything on the planet except Swiss cheese. I'm a tomboy who adores polka dots, a Palo Alto native drawn to the past as much as the future, and an outdoors-loving bookworm who’s most at home under a cozy blanket with a good book.
I've been a writer—at least in my own mind—since the age of nine, when I chose to spend my summer vacation penning The Complete History of the United States on binder paper. I may not have taken that particular project past Sir Francis Drake, but the hook was set.
Since then, I've lived an eclectic life in California, Australia, and Singapore. As a marketing executive, I worked with companies like Visa and Nike, then helped take Ancestry.com public. I've also spent three years sailing in Mexico. It's not your average path to novelist, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Lest I accidentally create a false impression of perfection, allow me to offer a few other truths: I was the shyest kid in third grade. I have ADHD and am a wuss about cold weather. If the DMV tested sense of direction, I'd be banned from driving, and I have a procrastination problem that requires every mental trick I know to overcome—though pretty much every day I do.
I could go on, but you get the point. I'm as human a being as they come.
The Prisoner’s Apprentice is my first novel. As it happens, I am also the great-great-grand-niece of Edward Rulloff. Consider yourself warned.
