Ahoy there, and welcome to my website!

I’m the author of A Star to Steer Her By, published in March 2017 by Entangled Embrace, and Into the Scottish Mist (The Wild Rose Press, 2011).

A Star to Steer Her By is (very) loosely based on my own college semester at sea (though unlike my heroine, Ari, I did not have a romance with a sexy deckhand, alas), and I hope to share details about my own experience at sea and how they relate to the story.

You’ll also find information about my books as well as other fun things (like a vast array of photos of ships and other things from my travels). Don’t forget to sign up for my mailing list. I promise not to bombard you with emails, but if you sign up you’ll have access to exclusive content. You can also follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Thanks so much for dropping by, and I look forward to getting to know you!

About Me

My love for the sea began when I became a scuba diver at age 14. That led me to a college semester at sea. I returned with fond memories of being on a schooner under full sail, less fond memories of hurling over the leeward rail on a daily basis, and a sailing bug I couldn’t quite shake. I also have a fascination for all things Scottish (including, but not limited to, men in kilts), which I explored with my first novel, INTO THE SCOTTISH MIST, and carried into my new novel, A STAR TO STEER HER BY (Entangled Embrace, March 2017). I'm a native New Yorker, and am always looking ahead to my next voyage, whether a short one on a dive boat or whale watch, or, with luck, a longer one on a tall ship.
