Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York but live in New England now.

Tell us your latest news?
My debut novel, If I Fail, A Jake Carrington Mystery will be released on September 7, 2012

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

No Regrets, She Did It All

What is the ultimate dream vacation?
Anywhere in the Caribbean, on a beach with only my husband, for company.

What person in history would you most like to meet?
Eleanor Roosevelt. I actually did meet her, when I was seven, just before she die. What a great lady and she left quite an impression on me.

If you could design a refrigerator magnet, what would it say?
Are you supposed to eat that?

Are rules really meant to be broken? Jake Carrington finds out the hard way and the answer is no! Dating Chloe Wagner was a huge mistake, and Jake should have known better—he’s investigating the murder of Chloe’s sister. Chloe is now the number one suspect in that murder. If she’s convicted, Jake could lose not only his rank, but his job. If that’s not bad enough, he’s got a stalker on his hands, someone who’s threatening his fledgling relationship with the lovely Mia. Things are getting just a little too personal for comfort!
