• Writing has always been a part of my life. In high school I wrote short stories and even won a Scholastic Arts and Writing Gold award in Fantasy.

    I spent ten years in Higher Education and ended up with Masters in both Counseling and Theology. In 2008, I woke up with a plot line for a series of young adult novels. That was my launch pad into writing and SCBWI has been my fuel.

    I am repped by Kelly Sonnack of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Faking Normal, a stand-alone realistic contemporary from HarperTeen in 2014, was my debut novel. The Blue-Haired Boy is a follow-up novella set in the world of Faking Normal. The Lies About Truth releases November 3rd, 2015. Dressing the Part is set to release in fall of 2016 and a fourth novel, currently untitled, will release in fall of 2017.
