About … Or Who Am I?

ME: I’m a former internal audit manager and now a full-time novelist. I love traveling, especially on cruise ships to explore new ports of call. When I’m not living out of a suitcase, I’m home in Philadelphia with my Danish husband and Lucy the cat.

MY BOOK STATUS: My debut novel Aquavit went live on Amazon in May. Sample chapters are available to read for free. If you buy the paperback, you can download  the e-book free. And 50% of my net profits will go to animal rescue organizations.

MY WEBSITE: I plan to add period updates on not just my novel and my new writing life but my new hometown Philadelphia, ships, and travel.

MY NOVEL: Aquavit tells the story of a disillusioned businesswoman Kathryn “Kat” Jensen, and the ordeal she goes through to take a well-deserved, extended vacation. As you can tell, Kat and I have some similarities. We both worked as internal audit managers in New York City, and while some days were exciting and challenging, others were pure drudgery and downright painful. But we’ve looked back on the better days and dream of what might have been if things were different. Our muse has tons of great ideas to help me tell her exciting story. I should apologize for putting Kat through all sorts of heartbreak and mini-disasters. Luckily, she’s tough and will manage her way through it. Just like I did!

FUTURE NOVELS: My muse and I will return to poor Kat and her adventures at sea en route to Hong Kong. She is currently being held hostage by rebels. But I’m getting ahead of myself and don’t want to ruin the surprises in a sequel.
