"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." - C.S. Lewis
It's my passion to write stories about self-acceptance, finding the light even in the darkest times, and the gift of redemption. As someone who has faced the reality that life is fragile and often fleeting, I intend to fill every bit of the time I'm given with creativity, imagination and hope. Like my heroine Nova, I've realized that sometimes our weaknesses can become our greatest strengths.
In addition to writing, I'm also a singer-songwriter, poet, cancer survivor and proud wife and mother.
I wrote my first full story in a spiral bound notebook when I was twelve. I wrote my first song that same year. It took me a while to realize I didn't have to choose between my writing and my music and could blend the two into something truly magical.
My parents gave me the two best tools in my arsenal by reading to me, and raising me in a Christian household. Thanks Mom and Dad!
I was born and raised in Upstate New York, where the seasons are early winter, mid-winter, long winter, and construction. In spite of that I continue to live in the area with the amazing husband that God in his grace made just for me, and my forever best story - my son.
My fantasy Divide Series debuted with the short story prequel The Dragon Between Worlds, which was published in Deep Magic's August 2016 issue. You can find it on Amazon.
Book One, Child of Prophecy, is due for release in 2018. Stay tuned!
