I write about love and ambition, career and family secrets. I’ve dreamed about becoming a writer since I was a child, but started writing novels only after earning a PhD in physics. Not surprisingly, my first published works were scientific papers, and my first novel was about a physicist.

I like to read about remarkable people who do not take themselves too seriously. I enjoy love stories, magical realism, and quests. My favorite writer is Jane Austen, and my favorite heroines are Elizabeth Bennet and Anne Elliot.
