I was one of those shy, quiet kids who spent more time reading than talking. Literally. I didn’t speak a single word for the first three months of preschool, but I had already taught myself to read. My fascination with reading led to many hours spent in the library and bookstores, and eventually to writing. I wrote my first novel when I was sixteen years old, but spent ten years rewriting and perfecting it before having it published. 

Native to New Mexico, my husband and me spent several years in Colorado for college and work before moving back home to be near family again. Our two children love having their seventeen cousins close by. When not writing, you can find me reading, painting, sewing and trying not to get bitten by small children in my work as a dental hygienist. 

I have several bestselling young adult urban fantasy series, and my first contemporary romance, Date Shark, will be released with Limitless Publishing in 2014.
