Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my website and welcome to my fictional world of hope, love, and rock 'n' roll! I'm a mom, teacher, and music enthusiast who is passionate about kids, critters, and making the world a better place. I love writing stories where folks from all walks of life will find their happily ever after. I write contemporary and paranormal romance, historical, and horror stories with quirky characters, real-life issues, and awkward interludes. If you dig stories that will simultaneously make you laugh and awwww, then this is the place for you! Check out the books, join the mailing list, or drop me a line. I love interacting with readers and music lovers.

 

I've been published since 2014, both self and traditionally. In 2019 I blasted off with the Magic and Mayhem Universe with author Robyn Peterman. My novel Hurricane Reese won the Kathryn Hayes "When Sparks Fly" contest for Best Contemporary Romance. I'm so grateful to the RWA-NYC chapter for their support. Typhoon Toby, Summer of Hush, and Brains and Brawn were all contest finalists as well. I appreciate all of the support it took to make them the best books they could be!

I'm a member of the Bay Area Queer Writer's Association, Bay Area Romance Writers, Angela James's From Written to Recommended Community, The Inclusive Romance Project, RSJ Community, and the Golden State Romance Writers.

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I currently live with a teen and a twenty yo, two cats, a dog, a snake, a crested gecko, a bunch of fish, and the most patient husband on the planet. I'm a guerilla writer who can be found penning passionate stories anywhere I am warm and dry and they have a steady supply of Diet Coke and chocolate.

Thanks again for stopping by!
