Meet the Author

I was born on the banks of an ancient river in a country which no longer exists.I began telling stories as a child and never stopped. To date, I have written close to three million words in 11 published books. My novel, The Secrets of Jin-shei, has been published in 14 languages all around the world. My popular Young Adult Worldweavers series features New World magic and a heroine who is as American as Harry Potter is British.I like books, embroidery, music ranging from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" to Dvorak's New World Symphony, animals, coffee, chocolate, snow, velvet -- and, in people, kindness, intelligence and an off-the-wall sense of humor.I am a punaholic, a chronic worrier, sentimental and passionate. I am married to a man who wooed me over the Internet and lured me to America, where I am currently owned by two cats.
