3 Fun Facts

1. My grandmother Louise can read palms and tell fortunes (my character in my Time-Traveling Fashionista books is named after her!)
2. My great-grandmother Alice Mills was a professional football (soccer) player in England and that is how she came to America.
3. I was a competitive swimmer from when I was 5 years old through college and still feel happiest when I’m underwater.
