Howdy! Here’s a page about me.
I love to write books! Especially fantasy. I blame a childhood of devouring any fantasy story I could get my hands on for that.
My specialty are stories about finding identity, searching for hope in the darkness, and standing by the family you choose. I have a big soft spot for sibling stories and those feature heavily into all my stories. Also featured is lots of snark and high stakes action.
I come from a big family, and my stories are a little bit about paying tribute to the amazing, and sometimes not so amazing, aspects of family. I also struggled a lot with identity and being brave enough to accept myself as who I was starting in highschool, through college and grad school.
The self doubt still flares up every now and then, but I’m a little bit closer to knowing who I am, thanks to the stories I tell. If you relate to that too, then these are the stories for you. Because inside you is a magnificent dragon just waiting to be set loose.
When not writing my heart and soul into books, I moonlight as a pediatric Physical Therapist in Arlington, TX where my child-like and Disney-loving self is free to let loose. 🙂
Other fun facts about me:

- Redwall, LOTR, and Narnia are pretty much the reasons I love writing fantasy and adventure.
