2020 Update: I'm currently taking a break from writing due to a lack of inspiration. In the meantime, I will be mentoring readers through messages and YouTube! Shoot me a message and let's work on your novel.

I'm a writer of young adult novels and is known for my horrifying and creepy ghost stories. Authors such as R.L. Stine and Mary Downing Hahn inspire me. I'm also a professional photographer so if you'd like to support my art on Instagram @ms_horrendous

My most famous won the 2016 Wattys Award and currently has over 9 million reads. In 2017, Chapters: Interactive Stories App purchased Hide and Seek to become an interactive game where millions of users over the world can access.

In 2018, I contributed to The Writer's Guide to Wattpad for Reader's Digest. The article with them (43-52) is on buying and making book covers.

Although I was born in South Carolina, USA, in 2009 I moved to Egypt with my parents to learn Arabic where I eventually became fluent in that language. My time there was full of interesting events including witnessing and living through The 2011 Egyptian revolution.
