I'm a cook that moonlights as a writer. Hopefully one day it can be the other way around, but until then I have Wattpad.

I've studied English & Creative writing, and I already have a college diploma under my belt for Personal Support Worker. I worked in two long-term care nursing homes before moving to Toronto to attend York University, which I have completed two years of.

My writing style focuses a lot on macabre themes while incorporating emotional drama, family tension, and suspense. The genre I tend to lean most towards is Mystery, but I prefer not to pin myself down to a single way of writing and will always explore whichever direction my creativity takes me.

I began writing on Wattpad five years ago with my public debut novel, Deerborn. The goal I set for myself while writing the series was to stifle my own perfectionism in order to cultivate my creativity, therefore finally breaking free from the dreaded writers block. The four books are first drafts and barely edited, though I've been working behind the scenes on the revisions. I hope one day to clean them up and have them published.

As of right now I am working on my latest novel, Bar Boys, which follows three gangs in the midst of a bloody turf war. I'm hoping for this to be a longer novel that doesn't follow the normal first, second, third acts, but rather flows as a continuous drama.

I was a Wattpad Ambassador from September 2015 until the summer of 2017. I'm currently on a break while I focus on writing and work.

As for my personal life, I'm 25 years old and a proud dog mom of two chihuahuas, Zayla & Bailey. I currently live in rural Ontario.

Deerborn (Book One) Completed
Deerborn: Bloodline (Book Two) Completed
Deerborn: Lifeline (Book Three) Completed
Deerborn: Deadline (Book Four) Completed

(Update Schedule: Both The Deerborn Chronicles & Legacy are currently on hold.)

- I do NOT currently take reading requests.
