I write teen fiction, new adult/chicklit, and sundry short stories, so you'll find a little bit of each of those here. My style ranges from approachable and fun to a bit darker and more poetic, depending on the genre I'm writing in, but all of my works seem to feature flawed human beings doing the best that they can in life.

I'm a Wattpad Star, and I also attend a creative writing mentorship program at university, so writing is my life, basically, even though I didn't start writing in earnest until I turned thirty. (I'll never hit a "30 under 30" list, but I'm okay with it.) My best adivce? It's never too late to go back to school, start a novel, or learn a new craft. :)

My novella QUEEN OF CUPS was a Chicklit profile Book of the Month selection and a Wattpad Featured Story. My short story THE CURSE OF THE FAIRY QUEEN was on the 2018 Wattys shortlist.

My current WIPs are GLITCH, a contemporary YA novel about time loops and first love, and HEART OF COLD, a chick-lit companion novella to QUEEN OF CUPS which can be read as a standalone story.
