About the author

I grew up in a very small town in Indiana. There wasn’t much to do, so I spent my time reading, writing short stories, and of course, because I’m a Hoosier, attending high school basketball games. As I was growing up, my family moved around a lot but always stayed in the small county. My favorite house, which my parents rented for a year, was a Gothic-Victorian built in the 1870s. 


As a teenager, I loved to climb up to the tower room and write. In college, my favorite class was “Creative Writing”. At that time, I wrote science-fiction stories until the professor pulled me aside and said I needed to write about what I know. This is what I have done in my first novel The Cats that Surfed the Web. I now live with my husband in a Queen Anne Victorian house built in 1897; it’s a “painted lady” with four colors in the paint scheme. I’ve spent many hours restoring my beloved house. And we have lots of cats, mostly “rescues.” We rarely say “No” to a sociable stray that shows up at our door.
