I write high-octane spy thrillers, gritty crime thrillers, and cozy mysteries (under a pen name).
I’m also the host of MEET THE THRILLER AUTHOR. A podcast where I interview mystery and thrillers authors. I’ve been honored to interview more than 180 authors, including Dean Koontz, Lee Child, Tess Gerritsen, Walter Mosley, and many others!
I was born in Costa Rica, and grew up there and in Caracas, Venezuela. I moved to the United States (Minnesota) for college, married my college sweetheart, and have lived in Minnesota and California.
We currently lives in San Francisco, California, with our three small dogs.
