I’m a child of Greek immigrants (from Arcadia, for my Greek peeps who always ask). I studied photography and film before obtaining a doctorate in history. A life filled with wicked curveballs led to my second, unofficial doctorate in the art of rising and my present occupation. I know firsthand how much an encouraging word can help someone get back on their feet. That’s why I pen fun, thrival tales to entertain and uplift, in case a friend out there—you!—needs a boost.
The other members of Sisters in Crime and its Guppy Chapter keep me motivated. On the domestic front, Athena the cat muse and I live near Ontario’s Canada-U.S. border in a cozy fixer-upper. When I’m not searching for contractors (the kind who actually show up!), I love developing original Greekish recipes.
Here’s another bio tidbit: the cat in the website banner is my late Zeus. He came into my life during a rock bottom period–the best silver lining ever. The little fur guy got me through those rough years and enriched my life immeasurably. I pay homage to Zeus, my beloved, faithful friend, in every mystery I write. It’s the least I can do to say thank you.
