To say I am an author is only part of the story. But I suppose, that’s what makes me an author.
My life has been varied and rewarding. It’s had its ups and downs, triumphs and failures. I’ve written advertising copy, done fundraising for an opera company, co-founded a tech startup, taught music history at college level, raised two amazing daughters I don’t deserve. And I’ve had six historical novels published. I am fortunate indeed.
The novels arose out of my research for my PhD in music history from Yale. I started with just musical themes, then the bug hit and I looked at writing historical fiction as a way to explore how people really might have felt, to put myself in their shoes. This is the same whether I’m writing for adults or teens.
