An inveterate investigator of mysteries, I have always followed where my curiosity led. This has resulted in journeys across town, over the ocean, and when it came to uncovering my grandparents’ secrets, through time. My non-literary obsessions include travel, food and history. When I’m not investigating or writing, I often may be found reading – my favorite author is the mid-twentieth century English novelist Barbara Pym – or exploring ethnic restaurants. Ethiopian food, anyone? Bring it on!
