I'm a Florida native, Army veteran, mother and Rollins College alum. I am addicted to Netflix, ice and The Golden Girls.

In addition to the Golden Girls, I grew up on Murphy Brown, Clair Huxtable, and Julia Sugarbaker. Of course I'm sassy.

Writing again after a 9-year hiatus.

Jack of numerous languages. Master of none. Spanish and Russian in high school. Japanese in college. Working to be fluent in all.

I live in my head and that's where most of my closest friends live. They are quite possessive of my time and attention. My laptop is filled with friends impatiently waiting for me to tell their stories.

I like my characters a little messy, like me. It's like seeing myself in a book or television. I like when they sometimes say the wrong thing. I like that, even when they know better, they sometimes do the wrong thing. I like the build up of character-driven fiction.

#weneeddiversebooks supporter.
