I was born in Montreal, Quebec and raised in New England, where I developed a healthy appetite for ghosts and things that go bump in the night. An avid reader from a young age, I quickly worked her way through Alice in Wonderland, the Magical Monarch of Mo, Andrew Lang's Fairy Books, all of the Tintin comic books, Nancy Drew, and most of the other books in the children's library.

Finally, at the tender age of 10, I produced this poetic masterpiece:

"Whene'er you get a wandering leg
And feel that you must roam
Remember this and don't forget
The best place is at home"

To date, I have moved more than 25 times.

Along the way, I earned two degrees in English Literature, taught overseas, became the owner operator of the Poor Yorick Shakespeare Catalogue, and contributed to a number of Shakespeare-related publications.

Root Bound is the first of four books in the Emma and the Elementals series.
