  • Born: Madison, Wisconsin, The United States.

  • Description: I'm an avid reader, an academic librarian, and a writer of various things including crime fiction. My first mystery (or thriller if you like to categorize), On Edge, was published in 2002. In the Wind, introducing a new series set in Chicago, was published by St. Martin's in 2008. Reviewing it in the Chicago Tribune, Paul Goat Allen called it "an understated crime fiction gem." The second in the series, Through the Cracks, was published in May 2010. Library Journal said the story "packs a real punch. It will appeal to Sara Paretsky fans and mystery readers who long for tough and savvy female investigators."
