Her latest work, At the Table of Wolves, is a historical fantasy novel set in 1936 England. From Saga Press (an imprint of Simon & Schuster), it is the story of dark Talents, Nazis and espionage–offering up a dramatic and slightly-altered history of the run-up to WW2.

She and her husband split their time between Wenatchee and Southern California, both desert environments which she claims is the best environment for story ideas.
