My love affair with stories began before I could even read, when night after night my big brother Tom read to me the enchanting pages of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. These epic stories planted the very first seeds of inspiration, fueled my vivid imagination, and drove me to chase real-life adventure. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a degree in English, and spent my junior year studying abroad in the UK. Since then, I have written professionally as a newspaper journalist, an editor in educational publishing, and a software technical writer. Writing Strega was a true adventure, and one of my most favorite journeys!
