I live on Long Island, about twenty miles from New York City, and I've has been writing since high school, back when rocks were soft.
With an MA and BA in Theater (Costume), I worked for six years as a costume designer then spent many years (read: decades) as a clothing and swimwear designer in New York City. In 2004, I began a new career as a professor in the Fashion Design Department at the Art Institute of New York City where I teach Fashion History, Textiles, and various technical classes.
In 2005 I returned to school for a Masters in Writing Popular Fiction. My thesis was about the Medici family and set in Sixteenth Century Florence.
I am an assistant editor for The Complete Anachronist and I review novels for the Historical Novel Society. When I am not reading, writing, or researching, you can find me in my sewing room making Sixteenth Century garments. My thesis novel for Lancaster is about Sofonisba Anguissola, the first internationally recognized woman painter of the Renaissance.
