Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a neurosurgeon, mother of two awesome daughters, and a life-long fan of speculative fiction. Other than a few years spent out in lovely Oregon, I’ve lived and worked in New England, where I practice medicine and write.

What types of books do you write, and why?

I’ve been a fan of science fiction and fantasy since childhood, and I follow the motto: “write what you read”. All types of fantasy, from alternate history to contemporary, interest me (I have a special soft spot for dragons). I grew up hearing about my Italian grandmother’s talent in casting the evil eye, so I have an interest in the mythology and culture of the Mediterranean region, including the Middle East and North Africa. I try to incorporate literature and lore from non-Northern European sources in my writing.

Work in progress

I’m in the final edits of SUMMONING ZAHARA, a contemporary fantasy set in Morocco. Zahara, a not-so-terrifying Jinn determined to impress her infamously evil mother, needs to trick a modern-day sorcerer into giving up his soul. She ends up with Daniel Goldstein, who’s dealing with a recent break-up with his boyfriend and his Jewish grandmother’s ghost. Stuck in a magical contract with him, Zahara has to battle paranormal mercenaries and bumbling terrorists while she tries to save the world from one fallen angel… and save her heart from another.
