I have been enamored with historical fiction since I was old enough to sit still for bedtime readings of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. Now, I write stories of my own (and am much better at sitting still).  
When not writing, I can be found reviewing historical fiction as part of the Historical Novels Review's editorial team.  I enjoy getting lost in secondhand book stores and sifting through odd bits of ephemera and calling it "research".
