I grew up in Bettendorf, Iowa, within sight of the Mississippi River. I earned a degree in Theatre Arts and a pre-law certificate at St. Ambrose University, in Davenport, Iowa. After graduation, I moved to the amazing city of Chicago, performing in and directing plays around the Midwest. Eventually, I moved to California where I appeared on stage and in a few short films before seeking my teaching credential at California State University at Northridge.
Though I’ve written numerous short stories throughout my life, Devils Glen is my first full length novel.
I am happy to say I am currently a special education teacher at Northpoint School, in Northridge, CA, part of Child and Family Guidance Center. I live in Burbank, CA, with my family and my beloved dog, Stella.
