Professional title:

Fiction author, YA fantasy

What do you do?

I write YA fantasy novels and short stories with magic, adversity, and happily ever afters.


As a child I struggled to make friends. Between loneliness and my desire to escape my stressful high school years, I dove into novels and only came up to breathe when reality forced me to. Now I write those stories for the reader who needs a safe escape and proof that hope isn’t lost, like I did back then.

What should we read?

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine; Princess Academy by Shannon Hale; My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison; Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith
