Welcome to the debut of my new website. I'll start with a short introduction.

I was born and raised in Southern California suburbia and fell in love with reading, writing, and movies in childhood.  When I was around seven years old, I found a book about "real" ghosts in my school library and was both terrified and mesmerized by the idea that ghosts might actually exist.  From that point forward, I was hooked on haunting tales.

I grew up and became a writer and editor, and I'm now working on Blackbirds, a young adult gothic historical novel that's a blend of ghost story, mystery, fantasy, horror, love story, and coming-of-age tale, with a touch of steampunk. My goal is to deliver the manuscript to my agent in early 2011.  I invite you to follow along to receive the latest news about the novel's journey into print.

Thanks, Ara! It's another case of me obsessively playing around with all the new Blogger features. :-)
