She lives in Southampton, New York, close to the ocean and a bay beach where she meets flying sea robins and turtles on her morning walks with her rescue dog Loki. Aside from reading and playing chess with her son, her favorite activities are gardening, anything to do with horses, and dreaming of going on a horseback riding tour in Mongolia. She is a freelance writer, researcher, and translator. She has published two children’s picture books, Letters from the Tooth Fairy (Mill City Press, 2012), written in response to her son’s letters to the tooth fairy, and Turtle Crossing (Amazon KDP, 2021) about the adventures of Oliver the turtle. The Falconer’s Apprentice (namelos, 2015) was her first historical fiction novel for young readers. Her two most recent releases are Alina: A Song for the Telling (BHC Press, 2020) and The Amber Crane, a historical fiction novel set in Germany in the 17th century (Odyssey Books, 2021/forthcoming).
