Bio: I'm an award-winning author and have been editing since 1999. I write children's books and hysterical--er--I mean, historical fiction for adults. After living in Holland for thirteen years, I'm now in Colorado with my husband and four children (and too many spiders). I loved living in Europe with all its history: the ancient ruins of castles and Roman villas, seeing actual dungeons and gladiator arenas, and eating Roman food. Imagine the stories all those places could tell. When I was a girl, I'd dream up stories and play them out in my mind. Now that I’m all grown up, I make those dreams come to life by putting them down on paper.
