About Me


I write fantasy-sprinkled fiction for kids and teens. I was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado and am the oldest of five children. I first became interested in creative writing when I actually did really well on a short story in sixth grade. I think I was the only person to get perfect marks and I was pretty excited. That little experience stuck with me and I always knew I’d like to be a writer. I did dabble in ballet and sociology (I love sociology), but writing is always the most fun. At one time, I thought it would be awesome to be an actress, but I can’t act to save my life. Writing fiction from a first person point of view helps me live vicariously through a different character (which is loads of fun). The bulk of my time is spent with my family and kids, though. I just feel lucky that I can write for the fun of it and I always love to hear from my readers. It makes all the hard work (and crazy characters inside my head) worth it.
