Things you may or may not care to know about me:



Chicago is my kinda town, even if I wasn’t born here. I got here eventually, that's what counts.


Favorite Book as a Kid



Earliest Book Memory

After my “bedtime,” sneaking into my closet, which had an overhead light, and reading the latest Trixie Belden or Nancy Drew.  My dad told me a few years ago he knew what I was doing.  And here I thought I was being so devious and clever.


Favorite Book as a Supposed Adult

It would be like trying to choose a favorite kid (if I had any).  I just can’t do it.  Contenders for the throne include CATCHER IN THE RYE, MADAME BOVARY and GONE GIRL. Ask me in a year and I’m sure there’ll be three completely different answers.


Writing Heroes

Joy Fielding, Anita Shreve, Ann Hood.


Book That I Think Every Mystery Reader Should Read

CASE HISTORIES, by Kate Atkinson. Outstanding.    


When I’m Not Reading Fiction, I’m Reading

Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly or PEOPLE.  I also love the celebrity biography/autobiography genre.  AUDITION by Barbara Walters and KATE REMEMBERED by A. Scott Berg in particular were terrific. 


Writing Inspiration

The dark side of love intrigues me.  I like to explore how it can drive an ordinary person to extraordinary measures.


Best Piece of Writing Advice I Ever Got

Write what you like to read.


Worst Piece of Writing Advice I Ever Got

Write what you know.  What if you don’t know anything?


Favorite Movie

SOME LIKE IT HOT. Tears of laughter every time.


Movie That Made Me Want to Drown Myself in a Bottle of Absolut for a Few Hours

REVOLUTIONARY ROAD. Riveting, relentless, and raw.

Pet Peeves

Littering and spitting. And a special shout out to those who sneeze all over people, because we desperately want your germs.


What turns you off?

Hypocrisy with martyrdom nipping at its heels.


What is your favorite curse word?



What sound or noise do you hate?

Nails on a chalkboard, followed closely by the sound of spitting or vomiting.


People Would Be Surprised To Know

I’m a big, sloppy Star Wars freak. REVENGE OF THE SITH and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK are pretty fucking brilliant.


What is your favorite color?



Obsessed with?

All things 80s, Dr Pepper, Dentyne Fire Gum, shoes.


Secret Talent?

I'm the only person in my family who can whistle.


What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

Singer or Broadway dancer. 


What profession would you not like to do?

Law. Sorry, Dad.


If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

We’re so happy to have you.
