     Below are some of my interests and a glimpse into what occupies, and has occupied some of my time. I hope to do a Tuesday with Tia kind of thing where I share some pop culture and ideas that inspired my book. I’m also planning a monthly newsletter called Tea with Tia for an extra behind the scenes look. Thanks for stopping by, Tia.

A glimpse:

You will often find me outdoors, hiking and discussing film with my son, listening to 80’s and 90’s music, enjoying the sunshine on my deck, drinking Kona coffee, and practicing tennis, frisbee, dance fitness, and Pilates.

I’ve dabbled as a Research Guru, Photographer, Gal Friday, in Customer Service, Project Management, Construction, Travel and more.  I’ve studied Philosophy, Dance, and Cultural Studies, and travelled extensively in the U.S. and abroad.

     I was born in Maryland but moved shortly after and was hired immediately out of college at an Investigative Agency before accepting another job. My dad played Pro Baseball and math wizardry runs in my family. Although I love the Seasons, I am always planning my escape to some place tropical where I can forever park my Nike Tennis shoes.   

I love all things film (especially action and buddy cop) with 48 Hours, Rush Hour, Big Trouble in Little China, and Die Hard being favorites. I frequent Musical Theater (with Legally Blonde, Grease, and Spamalot) at the top of my list. I enjoy live concerts, the outdoors, themed parties (planning & organizing), Architecture (especially Airports), Comic-con, and listening to jazz, and select soundtracks.

     I admire Bruce Lee, John Hughes, Wes Craven and Stephen King to name a few; and my writing influences include Janet Evanovich, John Hughes, Mike Judge and Richard Linklater.

I’ve also written a three book, Rock Star themed, romance Mystery, with comedy. Book one and two are available, and book three (cover below) is coming March 2019:

A Dead Ringer for Katie

On the dock of the bay

She was only there to pay off a debt . . .

But somehow Katie was now neck deep in investigating a theft of an heirloom necklace.  OK, not somehow.  Once again her too-eager-to-help nature got the best of her.  Just like the gambling addicted, ex-boyfriend who racked up the debts, now her poorest-of-judgment, best friend needs a favor:  help find the necklace stolen by none other than rock god, Sleigher, lead singer to the Cave Spiders.

And from there, things only get more complicated…the fact that Sleigher is hotter than hot and oh-so-irresistible is just the beginning.  Throw in a sexy police detective, a psycho fan-girl, and Katie’s visiting mother (Mob-Boss boyfriend in tow), and somehow a simple debt payback turns into chaos Rock Star Style!

Katie has been in unusual binds before, but nothing prepares her for danger Rock Star style . . .

Thanks for stopping by and reading,
