Award-winning author. First two novels nominated for the Library of Virginia Fiction award in 2006 and 2009. My fiction explores the challenges of ordinary people under extraordinary circumstances. Other than talking books and writing at book clubs, festivals and libraries up and down the East Coast, I hide out wherever I can see open space and let my imagination carry me away. My latest, CATCHER, CAUGHT, is Daniel Landon's story of his 16th year, battling leukemia and finding insight in Holden Caulfield's take on the adult world. Read anything and be more. Life is glorious.
