I live in the Pittsburgh area, enduring the seemingly endless winters, and the sometimes brutally hot summers.

If I'm not writing...which is almost never, I love hiking and movies.

I am also a board game designer, and my new game, Dodge Dice, is available from Gamewright Games.

Best Place to Read and Write: The Park

Favorite Movie: Avatar (When I saw that movie the first time, it lit something inside me and I came home and started seriously writing for the first time.)
