About Me

image67

I am a Momma, Writer, Registered Nurse, HIIT Lover (high intensity interval training!).


I write lyrical picture books & young adult action/sci-fi/dystopian with can't-live-without-you love stories.


I have a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.


I enjoy Thai take-out, Florida sunshine, palm trees, and spontaneous dance parties with my littles. 


As a singer-songwriter throughout my twenties, I performed just about everything under the sun. Most memorable experiences: covering Lauren Hill with a 9-piece dance band at Market Square Day in Portsmouth, NH; performing in front of thousands at Taste Of Bozeman in Bozeman, MT; Performing with an Irish musician at an Irish Bar in NYC; recording an album with a gospel choir.


Random past jobs include Customer Service at a publishing house, Karaoke DJ, Executive Assistant at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Assistant Manager at Levi's Outlet Store (my closet has never looked better!), and Salad Bar Queen.


My favorite reads growing up: Nancy Drew Case Files, Judy Blume, anything by Christopher Pike, Jane Eyre, Shel Silverstein, Black Beauty, The Baby-Sitters Club.


I grew up across the street from my town library. I may have spent some time there...
