Athens, Greece (although I'll always hold close to my heart the little northern Quebec town where I was born and raised).
I work from home as a Consultant in Clinical Research and write on the side. Years ago and across the pond, I worked as a Certified Specialist in Poison Information at the Utah Poison Center before taking up the Senior position at the Central Texas Poison Center. I'm available for guidance to anyone who has poison, toxin or venom-related questions.

Life has a way of insisting on immediate attention - good luck finishing up when you've got some breathing room! Finished(ish) the book, decided I hated it (far too soft with characterizations and generally mooshy with some major plot points). Stuck it in a drawer and am now very close to finishing a book that's quite a bit different. Really having fun with it, so...we'll see what happens!
Glad to hear you've heard and enjoyed some of the IFQ shows. It's been a great excuse to chat with some wonderful peeps in the crime fiction community.
Hey, you've got a great memory! Yes, that was me. I finished The Secret Place - now renamed The Private Lie - just a few weeks ago. I'm doing some polishing and maybe add a scene (someone's suggested a sex scene is required!) and then I'll send it to some agents.
