I am a Young Adult Fiction writer living in Portland, Oregon with one cat, two teenagers, and a man who wants to live on a boat.

I started writing when I was thirteen, and I love to read and write YA.

I love reality television, especially any show that has a competitive element.

Ghost Hand is the first book of The PSS Chronicles, a YA paranormal thriller series. It is available on Amazon, Kobo, and Google Play for FREE.

Ghost Hold, book two, was released in 2013. Ghost Heart, book three, was released in 2014. And Ghost Hope, the final book of the series came out June 2016.

Thanks for checking out my work and happy reading.
