A Bit About Me

I’m a former internal audit manager and now a full-time novelist. I love traveling, especially on 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 cats.

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


A Thrill to Finally Hold My Aquavit 

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.

Aquavit tells the story of a disillusioned businesswoman Kathryn “Kat” Jensen, and the ordeal she goes through to take a well-deserved, extended vacation. Aquavit is available on Amazon as an ebook & paperback. Also available on Barnes & Noble Nook and other e-retailers. Amazon Link

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