About Me

I grew up in California, which imbued me with a love of sushi, foggy weather, Victorian architecture, and books. All the books.

As a child, I was never bookless. At the dentist, while camping, waiting in line at the movies: I had a book in hand. At age seven I wrote my first short story collection titled, "My Book of Gory Deaths" by "the 2nd Agatha Christie." Such a humble kid.

Throughout my adventures and over the years, I somehow never became the author child-me had envisioned until I had a child of my own. It took a full thirty-six years before I pen to paper in a serious way.

Many books later, I still love sushi and foggy weather, though the latter is a rarity now that I live in Colorado. The stories I write tend to be about siblings, found-family, and magic, about self-acceptance and forgiveness, and most of all, about bravery in the face of terrible odds. All my books are LGBTQIA+ inclusive, something I am happily seeing more and more of in fantasy. I am still never bookless.

When I'm not writing or working, I spend time with my partner and two small kids, play old-time banjo, bake bread, and I've recently started boxing. My pronouns are she/her. I am actively looking for representation.
