I have been writing ever since, well, they started teaching me how as a small child. But seriously, I've known since I was about 10 years old that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up.
Currently, I work as a senior-level technical writer for a software company. In my spare time, I write fiction for teenagers and adults.
A native San Diegan, I moved to Manchester, UK, in 2000, where I enjoy listening to English accents, driving on the left, and experiencing weather.
Oh, and in case you're wondering, I haven't grown up yet.
Changing Gears is my YA sports novel set in the world of Southern California bike racing.

Co-ghostwrote Belonging, by Sameem Ali
I have also published nonfiction in the following magazines:

This does not, of course, include the hundreds of manuals I've written over the years as a technical writer.
