Over the years I've had the honor to work at a number of occupations: nurse, malpractice insurance investigator, forensic nurse examiner, victim advocate, wife and mother.
Even if I sometimes wish they'd remain in the closet, the years I spent advocating for victims of sexual violence contribute significantly to the voice of my writing. You can't spend twelve years haunting police stations, Emergency Rooms, and criminal courts and not come away with a feel for rampant misogyny, overwhelming apathy, or overt bigotry.
I retired my speculum a few years ago but continue to advocate, quietly, for disenfranchised populations through Panties for Peace and Doctors Without Borders.

Blurb for Try Just Once More, a contemporary romantic suspense is set in the Adirondack Mountains of Northern New York State.
After she is cleared of homicide charges, Maggie McGuire retreats to her childhood home to regroup and continuing the rocky road to sobriety. Now, after three years, her past rises up to bite her in the butt; this time it's aimed directly at her precious children. The new chief of police, who won't leave things alone, continually picks at her, trying to find all the puzzle pieces. She once trusted a cop and lived to regret it.
No stranger to betrayal, Chief Mike Brandt will have to set aside personal biases in order to protect the McGuire family-and convince Maggie to try just once more.
