I've long been fascinated with Russian culture, particularly the Romanovs. In my novels, I explore the inner lives of historical figures and connects stories from the past to the present day characters. Born and raised in Central California, I've lived in Los Angeles and Metro Detroit, and currently reside in Sacramento. In my spare time, I enjoy travel, trying new vegetarian recipes and restaurants, and an annual trip to San Diego Comic-Con. My favorite genres are historical, historical romance, domestic suspense, and science fiction.
