I was born in New York on a cold winter’s morning to Robert W. and Alice J. Spanarkel. I studied philosophy and English at the City University of New York where I developed a fine interest in sarcasm, irony, and the Oxford comma. In 1997 I decided to head out to the prairies of the Midwest, and settled in Wichita, Kansas where I pursued a career in sales. In 2003, on a beautiful April day, I married my husband, Todd Harrington.
In 2017, I found Twitter and began writing from the prompt, VSS#365 (Very Short Story) in which I composed stories that fit into a tweet. Since then, I have had numerous short stories published in various anthologies. My debut novel, The Eyes Of A Killer, was published in 2022.
In my spare time I enjoy riding my Missouri Foxtrotting horse, Sadie, and chasing my Labrador Retriever, Smarty Marty.
Currently, I am working on my second novel, titled Wolffs Haven.
