I'm a former news reporter and retired private detective who yearns for more adventure than 'Hold the presses!' and stacks of case files can provide. The role of starship captain was my dream long before James T ever uttered "Beam me up!" Writing stories is my way of living that dream.
When I'm not tinkering with a recalcitrant sublight drive, you can find me in southwest Florida (winters) or central Ohio (summers) living with my very patient husband, Robert Bernadino and our thoroughly spoiled cats.
