About the Author
I was raised in Washington, Arkansas, and Utah. I graduated from Brigham Young University, where I earned a degree in history and secondary education and met my wonderful husband. One month after graduating, I entered into full-time motherhood and now have five children--three girls and two boys, ages nineteen down to six.

After school, we moved to Arizona, where we lived for four years without ever making it to the Grand Canyon. We then headed east to Massachusetts, where we did make it to Cape Cod, Fenway Park and the Boston Pops, but missed our chance to develop Boston accents by leaving after only six years so we could spend a couple of years in Ireland. In summer 2004 we winged our way back to the U.S. and settled in northern California.

As far as hobbies, quirks, or what have you, I’m an amateur violinist, a chronically disorganized housekeeper, and an avid procrastinator. I enjoy the music of the Kingston Trio and Christy Moore, the novels of Connie Willis and Mary Higgins Clark, and David Suchet’s interpretation of Hercule Poirot on “Mystery”. Oh, and I love Gone With the Wind—the novel, not the movie—and Disney’s “The Emperor’s New Groove.”

As far as writing goes, I’ve enjoyed making up stories since I was a child, when my sisters and I would play long, strange Barbie games or write and direct plays for ourselves and younger siblings. I took a creative writing class in high school, but my stories stunk, since I hadn’t yet figured out that a story needs a plot. But I finally got a fun idea, and an encouraging comment from the teacher got me rolling. After a few years of writing random scenes, I decided to try writing a novel start to finish, but that led to a failed unfinished manuscript and the realization that there was a lot more to writing fiction than I’d ever understood. I began reading books about fiction technique and started over with my novel project.

After many years of reading technique books, writing, rewriting, more rewriting, submitting, and then—when I thought I was finished—major rewriting, my first novel, a futuristic thriller called The Believer, was published by Covenant Communications in January 2005. I then turned to writing contemporary suspense, and Fool Me Twice was released in 2008, followed by Methods of Madness (2009), Cold as Ice (2010), Rearview Mirror (2011), andShadowed (2012). Four of my novels areWhitney Award winners for Best Mystery/Suspense.
