I'm a singer, writer and actor. I've been on Broadway and am the author of three mysteries featuring aspiring actress/office temp Isobel Spice. I started out like Isobel, temping and auditioning, and although I never stumbled across any dead bodies, I have used a lot of my own and my friends' experiences in my stories. Hope you enjoy!
