"I'm doing a story!"

That was my line as I slammed the door to my bedroom. When I was a kid, I wanted to be alone so I could fully immerse myself in a perilous story and stay there - facing impossible odds and determined to defeat evil.

Today, I love writing characters who defy the status quo in fantastical worlds that mirror our own. Using their wits, with the help of their friends, these brave young people find a way to triumph.

I am currently seeking representation for my middle grade fantasy EVIE AND THE BOY FROM THE SEA. I have a few other fantasies in the works, including GUARDIANS OF EARTH AND SKY and JAREN SILVERWING AND THE DARKEST SPELL.
