After growing up in a 200 year old slightly haunted house, she was hooked on all things spooky. She writes fantasy about ghosts and the supernatural with elements of mystery and romance. Her five book series, Maple Hill Chronicles, includes Dreams of Fire, Sylvan Dreams and Hallowed Dreams. She has a degree in anthropology from WSU and spent several summers doing archaeology in the Aleutian Islands. Currently, she spends time in the garden and orchard, loves singing duets with her husband, knitting, and coddling their very old cat.
