"She remembered who she was
and the game changed."
― Lalah Delia

I write YA with a bit of romance, mystery and magic. Of course, I love to read too! Especially YA and NA fiction. Bonus points if there is a historical setting or romantic subplot.

My novel SONG OF A SOPHOMORE is about to undergo edits, as it was selected for the 2022 Watty's Bootcamp Mentorship Program. I am so excited to work with my mentor, author @nicolenorthwood, on this a nostalgic coming-of-age story about a bullied teen's quest for first love and self-acceptance. It is inspired by my fascination with 90s pop culture and music, as well as my real-life struggles being bullied as a teen.

Writing this book was a healing journey for me and I am excited to share it with you. If you take the time to read it, thank you! And thanks for your kind, constructive feedback.

I appreciate your support!
