I write the Sean McPherson novels — fast-paced thrillers set in the Pacific Northwest featuring a trifecta of malice and the pursuit and cost of justice. As a photographer and avid reader, I carry a laptop, book and camera with me wherever I go. Growing up, I wanted to be a magician, international spy, and mad scientist. There’s still time! I live in the Pacific Northwest with my pilot-husband, Len, where I enjoy yoga, bicycling, and camping. I love to travel and take walks—long walks! I walked across Scotland, a 211-mile journey from the North Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. At the mid-point, I climbed Ben Nevis, the highest point in the British Isles. My Achilles’ heel? Red licorice. I adore it!
