When her children turned three and four in what felt like one season, she resigned from her post as a high tech executive to pursue writing. I Liked My Life (St. Martin’s Press) is her debut novel. It has been published in six languages, hit the bestseller list in Germany, was a Goodreads Reader Choice and Audie Award finalist in fiction. She and her family live in Rye, NH. When not writing or watching the comedy show that is her children, she enjoys reading across genres, skiing, and hiking. Oh, and travel. Who doesn’t love vacation?
