Hi, y'all. Even though I'm a transplanted Yankee (I've been down south for eight years), I've embraced the great traditions of y'all and running my air conditioner at odd times of the year. I grew up in Michigan, and I went to college at Western Michigan University (English majors unite!). Somewhere along the way, I picked up a Master's in Library Science, and because I'm insane, I'm back to school right now for a Master's in Children's Literature.
I've been writing for as long as I can remember (expect for this phase I went through in high school where I just sort of quit), and I write YA, NA, and nonfiction.
My first novel, THE SECRET OF ISOBEL KEY, is a NA contemporary mystery with historical flashbacks, and it was published by Bloomsbury Spark in 2013. The sequel, HER SECRET INHERITANCE, is out, too.
I'm also the author of DAUGHTER OF CHAOS, the first in a YA fantasy trilogy, which you can read here on Wattpad (or wherever eBooks are sold).
I'm new to this whole Wattpad thing, but I'm hoping to share teasers from my books with y'all (as well as some totally new stories, too).
