I earned my B.S. in biology with a minor in chemistry, then went on to attain a D.D.S. from Marquette University. I spent a year in New York at a Veterans’ hospital in a residency program, after which time, I practiced dentistry for ten years.
When our oldest son was in third grade, his teacher considered him a talented writer with a lot of potential. He must have acquired that talent from somewhere. Maybe even from me!
I sat down and wrote a novel—in long hand—start to finish. After reading that draft, I realized it was time to learn how to write. I wanted to follow my dream.
I’ve since sold dozens of stories to publications such as Highlights, Ask, Muse, Ladybug, Boys’ Life and more. I’m a member of the SCBWI, and served as our local chapter’s Critique Group Coordinator for three years.
When I’m not researching the mysteries of science or immersed in fictional world-building and characters, you can find me walking with our dog Louie, practicing yoga, reading absolutely everything I can, and cooking.
You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. (Links below) And here, on my blog!
