"You can't never let anything happen to you. Then nothing would ever happen to you."

HELLO wonderful readers. Welcome to my YA profile. If you like fantasy with a side of romance, you have stumbled into the right club.


NEON GIRL: A Watty award winner set in the fabulous city of Las Vegas, where fame can happen to anyone and connections come with strings attached.

BLOOMER: A mash-up of magic, dystopia, and the oldest profession on earth. And when you're begging for more... TENDERFOOT: Sequel to BLOOMER where the mischief continues on a submarine under the command of a pirate with pecs.

THE DRAGON RIDER AND THE FLYBOY: A steampunk adventure that sets out to prove that dragons and chickens can live peacefully together.

LITTLE WITCHES: Something new for lovers of magic, quirky characters, and badass bitches. Or, should that be witches?

The far-sighted SHEEP is there for shi*s and giggles.

For a little fireside reading, I also write adult romance here on WATTPAD under the username @neverfakeit


I grew up in Las Vegas under the rarely watchful eye of musician parents; exposed to late night jams and strangers camping out in the garage. This slightly dysfunctional, bohemian lifestyle turned me into a junkie. Of music, of course. Here's some stuff I like.

* Pink Floyd, The Shins, Elbow, Editors, Big Data, Joe Walsh, Glass Animals, David Bowie, Linkin Park, Death Cab for Cutie, The Beatles, Vast, Justin Timberlake, Ramsey Lewis Trio, REM, Kaskade, Bassnectar, Sting, J. Cole, Logic, Transviolet, Halsey, Blue October, Morgan Page, Eagles, Tears for Fears, Steely Dan, Trippie Redd, Rihanna, Ozzie and Ozzy *

FAV SHOWS: Madam Secretary, Big Bang Theory, Anthony Bourdain

I'm a Taurus and a Hufflepuff.
