A little about me

I'm a YA Fantasy Author who's a big fan of stories with strong female leads that have lots of grit. Though I grew up in a small town nestled in the hazy valleys that outskirt Appalachia, today you'll often find me jotting down story ideas in a Chicago cafe. Almost always, you'll find me with me with coffee and dark chocolate in hand. 

So how'd I wind up writing?

It all started as a hobby. As a creative at heart, I found something magical about slipping into another world, creating characters, and pulling all the pieces together to form riveting adventures.  

I wrote my first book at seven years old. It was about  unicorns, didn't have much of a plot, and consisted mostly of Crayola artwork. But the passion to tell a story was there!

 

A good number of years later, I completed The Waterfall Traveler by writing during my train commute to work each day. While I made my fair share of writing mistakes, I had a good support group of other authors that helped guide me. I would've never completed my first novel without their advice and support. 

After releasing TWT, I took a break from writing after my son was born. But I'm back to writing today, working on the sequel to TWT, as well as a standalone YA Fantasy novel with a western twist.

If you enjoy YA Fantasy, and my writing sounds like something you might enjoy, I invite you to stay connected by subscribing to my email list or following me on social channels. You can also check out my blog where I'll share things regarding my writing, author interviews, giveaways, and writing advice.

I absolutely love hearing from readers and writers alike, so please hop on over here if you'd like to send me a message.
