I spent many years as a lawyer before realizing that I’d rather write things that people might actually enjoy reading. I grew up mostly overseas and attended eight different schools, my favorite being the Hogwarts-type castle in Scotland. The faculty, of course, did not consist of wizards, although . . . how did the headmistress know that it was “the wee redhead” who led the campaign to free the mice from the biology lab? I draw on my childhood—and my second childhood through my children—for my stories. I still love to travel but nowadays most trips tend to be local, such as basketball and tennis courts, occasional emergency room visits, and the natural food store for very healthy organic chocolate with “life saving” flavonoids.
