My Story

When I was five years old, I decided I would write a book.

In fifth grade, I decided I would be an author.

At age 27, I published my first novel with a mid-size publisher…

...And found the situation didn’t fit me at all—I was miserable!


For a decade, I struggled over how my writing dreams seemed to be such a mismatch with reality.  


In 2012, I won a writing contest with a new publishing company. I had a fantastic eighteen months learning from talented editors and a great team until the publisher closed their doors. I had an almost published manuscript and a small band of former fans ready for my next novel, and I had to decide what would happen next. 

So I took the plunge and self-published my second novel. And have loved the adventure this journey has led me on! The more I learn, the more rewards I have found through this experience.

My story as an author continues to be written, and just like any great story,  there are conflicts, heroic quests, and personal character-building struggles and victories.

I am extremely grateful for every reader who has picked up one of my books. You, reader, have helped me along the way—Thank you!

If you are new to my works—Welcome! I hope you find a treasure here.

The magic of a book comes when a connection is made between a special reader who finds the story the author had hoped to share. I hope you are the one that gets to taste the magic here. 

Happy Reading!
