Born in the Hudson Highlands of New York, I grew up there, in the mountains of South Carolina, Coastal North Carolina and the foothills of the Adirondacks. Along the way I grew to love a lot of different cultures that don't always get along very well. Perhaps that's why my characters endlessly grapple with each other's differences. And of course I'm not just a writer. I'm also a dad, a foster parent and a psychiatric nurse (RN). If I write for anyone particularly, I write for the people who walk or ride to school or work with their heads resolutely stuck in books; armored against the world. In spirit, I walk beside you.
Life as a cop on a derelict starship is never easy, but when your robotic partner is accused of murdering one of your childhood friends and the community is looking to you for answers, you're going to need all the help you can find. And something good to eat. Maybe some music and a beer. What's the worst that could happen?
