I could go on and on about myself, but that would probably bore you. So, I'll try to keep it short or at least entertaining.
I have always enjoyed writing. I remember writing short stories in elementary school. As I got older, my stories got longer. I loved English and creative writing and hoped for a future as an author.
Life got in the way. I needed to go to college, college required money, which meant getting a job. Boring jobs earning very little money.
Just when I thought I'd be stuck in some dead end job and single forever...I met my husband. How he fell in love with tempermental, sarcastic, crazy ME, I'll never know.
We have six kids now. Yup. SIX. You read it right. No, we're not crazy. We just wanted a big family. Five of them are girls. Go ahead, say "What? Five girls??!!! Oh that poor boy." Our last baby was a boy, shocked me. I almost fell off the ultrasound table. Our family is absolutely perfect and I wouldn't have it any other way.
A few years ago I decided to get my books out there. The responses were positive, so I started writing more books. I now have nine books published. Four are YA dramas, four are YA paranormals, and one is a YA fantasy.
I cowrote three YA paranormals with Julia Crane.
I am also featured in three anthologies.
You can find out more about these books under the books tab.
I enjoy writing for teens. Maybe it's because I always read YA. Or maybe it's because my mind seems stuck in the teen years sometimes. The teen mind is awesome. I love that it's raw and passionate. It's filled with 'firsts'. First love, first high school experience, first kiss, first experimentation with...
I love hearing from my fans. Please feel free to contact me.
