When she's not writing, Ariella loves to spend time in the medieval world reading
historical fiction and non-fiction, especially anything about Eleanor of Aquitaine
or Richard III.
Reading doesn't occupy all of Ariella's time, however. She loves being outdoors,
and one of her favorite activities in the summer months is swimming in the ocean,
where she says she channels her inner mermaid.
Ariella enjoys life to the fullest and has been fortunate in putting one of her passions
to good use in her work as a successful ghostwriter. But at the urging of friends
and family, she decided to pen her own stories. She calls her first novel, A Tree
of Twisted Thorns, Flowers in the Attic for the 21st Century, and she plans to write
more stories about families with hidden secrets.
