I'm the author of The V-Files, a legal thriller series with strong female protagonists.


As an attorney for more than thirty years, I've litigated in U.S. federal and state courts and served on the management team of a national law firm. My law degree is from IIT Chicago Kent College of Law and  I received my MBA from The University of Chicago Booth School of Business. After graduate school I became one of the founding members of an international consulting company.

While I've handled more than 200 litigated cases, I've also consulted on matters stemming from natural disasters including the earthquakes in New Zealand, cyclones in Australia and hurricanes in the US.


In addition to writing novels and practicing law, I've received the Business Insurance Women to Watch Award, the Women with Vision Award, and the Mercedes Mentor Award.
