According to the bio on Amazon: "I write page-blistering thrillers about desperate people with a techno bent. For source material, I ran a software company, built video games, and opened many a door for my dogs. For fun, I flew a Mooney over the Golden Gate Bridge, spent my first anniversary with my husband and our flight instructor, and annihilated an entire Cub Scout pack in laser tag. There were no prisoners to take. Filed under miscellaneous, your ink pens are not safe near me, I can mimic the sound of most farm animals, and song lyrics will often haunt me for days whether I like the song or not."
