Although my stories are different, each involves immigrants surviving against odds. Plants and people are more alike than you might think. 

A featured Wattpad author, I write botanical and environmental fiction.

THE GROVE is a Featured story in Fantasy, a #WattpadPick, and is currently ranked #26 in Environment as of 5/27/18.
"The Grove is one of the best books I've seen on Wattpad...a dark and enchanting journey." Read @Bloodina_Cake 's full review:

The Grove's daring couple, Fuchsia and Cord (Corsia), are in great company as winners of the @su-SPEC-t five line romance contest and as one of the six finalists in the @Wattpadres Magnificent Makeover II.

The Mermaid in the Fog is a #westcountryfantasycontest finalist and second-place winner.

HOT PRESSED is a water-time mystery brimming with adventure in a breathtaking setting: https://www.wattpad.com/story/43075714-hot-pressed-wattys2015 Now you can read about the sequel, GHOST WASHED, at the end!

I've contributed to some fascinating forums, including a topic very dear to my heart, Environmental Urgency and Fiction hosted by @SeeThomasHowl on Howlarium: http://www.howlarium.com/urgency

Beside a bouquet of precision Sharpies, I get to write about the emotional side of the natural world while teaching drawing and painting to a wide audience of all ages. I enjoy running on the river trails with a rescue dog who rescued me back, skating on butter-smooth ice, snuggling with a big gray cat, and reading stories that evoke a time and place all their own.
