Am I a killer?
That is the question haunting 25-year-old Jane Jensen.
When she wakes up in the hospital after a devastating auto accident, she finds that her memory since ninth grade of high school has been wiped clean. As she heals, she begins to recover a memory here and there, and piece by piece, she tries to stitch everything together to reclaim her identity.
Jane is aware that she has gone from bullied, overweight schoolgirl to successful corporate wonk in the last several years. But when the wife of her teenage obsession gets killed in a professional hit, Jane makes yet another transition—murder suspect.
It’s a situation that would be unbearable for anyone but it’s infinitely worse for Jane for one major reason: she truly has no idea if she’s innocent or guilty.

Born in Brooklyn and raised in New York, I spent my teens and young twenties in Lower Manhattan. I met my husband back in the early ‘90s—our dogs arranged our marriage pretty much—and we left Tribeca for the West Coast with a few stops along the way. Eventually we ended up back in NY—in upstate—where we raised our two sons and multiple four-legged children.
I’ve been an avid reader since even before I even knew how to read. As a toddler, I memorized books and then pretended to read them. Later on, I became a proofreader and then copy editor, but I’ve never stopped writing. My first attempt at a book was as translator for my husband’s dog’s diary (he was German) and was titled The Book of Egg. It was an instant bestseller within our family.
Lately, fiction has been my thing and I’ve published a number of novels under a pen name. I’ve decided that now’s the time to own my work and so here I am.
