I was born in Massachusetts, grew up in Ohio, and received B.A. degrees in English and German from Duke University, and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Michigan. After college, I lived in Bonn, Germany as a Fulbright Scholar, and during this time wrote the first draft of my first novel, TIME WINDOWS. Getting it published was a dream come true for me, and I am so honored that it's still in print more than twenty years later, has won awards, and had some interest from movie producers (but no film in the works yet...).I've been a Writer in Residence for the Princeton Arts Council, a recipient of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Grant for Writers, and a featured speaker with (among others) Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, The Northern California Library Association, The International Reading Association, Fresno County Office of Education, California Reading Association, The American Library Association, and the National Council of Teachers of English. My husband and I live in Northern California, in a rambling mid-19th century house with an unruly garden. We have seven children, as well as a new daughter-in-law, plus assorted pets: dogs, cats, fish. When not at home with my family or working on a new book, I teach Creative Writing at Mills College, where I am a Professor of English.

I know that some of my followers are going to say I'm broken. This is the second book in a series where I, the Series Referee, say, "Nah, go ahead. This can be standalone."WTH? I know. But it's true. I find that if the writer has the ability to provide just enough backstory to any re-occuring charac...

One subtrope I enjoy and don't get enough of: suspense/thriller. Reading Prince Charming checked off all the necessary boxes for this subtrope. I mean I really haven't enjoyed a story in this arena since Sugar Bowl series from Sawyer Bennett. CD Reiss' execution was perfect. I had no idea where we w...

This goes down as a big fat meh from me. For the first 50% I didn't understand the main characters, let alone the secondary ones. The second 50% suddenly they were just in love, and I had trouble separating the units. I guess that's largely what this book was about and that Brad's love for Cara grew...
