I have lived in the New York City area since attending New York University for my undergraduate degree in English and American Literature. I also minored in Dramatic Literature: a silly and wonderful mishmash of acting, film, and theater history. 

Before that I lived in a small city in Ohio—a city that grows curiously more interesting the longer I am away from it. Since graduation I've made my living writing surveys about British television and scouting books to be adapted for film and television, among other things. 

Great as these gigs have been, I've always wanted to see if I could make it writing novels. I've been writing books since I was fourteen and I'm sure I'll keep doing it whether someone pays me for them or not. But the money part would be nice.
