Why do you write? Mostly, I write because it is fun and addictive. I have imagined adventures in new worlds for as long as I can remember. In my childhood, I was a voracious reader, and wrote poetry and short stories. So, I have been writing for many years, but only recently (2014) started self-publishing my novels. My novels include romance and, ideally, humor. The heroines are strong, active participants. My first full length novel, The Lady is Blue, addresses serious issues such as class, politics, and hormonal cycles and includes science.
Planner or Pantser?An interesting question! As a scientist I am trained to plan logically, but the other side of my brain emerges when I compose fiction. Often I have an idea with the start and end. Once I have an idea or character(s), the scenes sometimes pop into my head, or evolve from putting the characters and concepts together.

Personal Bio: I was born in the UK and have a PhD in molecular biophysics. I live with my husband, a dog and two cats in Atlanta, GA, USA. We have two sons at university. In “real” life, I am a professor with a research lab and many scientific articles. Good scientists and novelists share creative minds and stubborn persistence, despite adversity. My novels allow me to express humor and a wild imagination, while exploring serious problems with weird new characters and worlds. My published works include two science fiction romance novels and a short sweet fantasy story.
