Prior to 1999, she wrote everything under the pseudonym Holly Riggenbach.

Born and raised in New Jersey in a Victorian house full of oddities and reading materials, Holly now lives in a Tudor Revival house in Massachusetts with her husband, Theo, and an expanding library. She spends much time in coffee shops in company with her laptop.
Prior to her move to Massachusetts, Holly graduated from The College of New Jersey in 1995 and afterwards worked as a production editor on medical journals. She attended graduate school at Rutgers University in pursuit of the delightful Masters in Library Science degree.
