About me

I’m an engineer and statistician who began writing just five years ago, but I’ve been a LOTR fan since ninth grade. My favorite character was Angmar, but I also identified with Sam.


I live with my husband and three children in Northern Virginia, where my car is invisible among all the other silver minivans in the neighborhood.
