I work as a freelance database administrator, and when I'm not geeking out, I write romantic suspense novels. I live in Richmond, Va--less than two hours away from Washington DC--so most of the settings of my books are in the nation's capital--of course, I'm not averse to creating fictional towns and cities. ;)
When I'm not arguing with the alpha male characters in my head, I love to watch high-octane action movies. I think Jack Bauer is the shit, which is why most of my characters are such badasses bent on saving the world from evil doers.
I love reading adult contemporary, paranormal, urban fantasy, historical, romantic suspense, and a few new adult fiction as well as military non-fiction.
