I majored in History after discarding my more ambitious plan of medicine, which is a story unto itself. Then I had a special needs child, slowing down my PhD progress. Then we moved to the Pacific Northwest. I left that PhD by the side of the road.

Each of my novels has a sources page if you wonder where I got the bits and bobs I include.
