Welcome, lovely readers!  Me in a nutshell: I live in the beautiful hills of Anaheim, California with Teddy, my goofy lowland sheepdog, and high school sweetheart of thirteen years. I hold a Screenwriting B.A. from Chapman University’s School of Film and Media Arts. Even though I’m primarily a novelist, film school deepened my love for crafting fiction tenfold; it taught me to concentrate on plotting, dynamic characters, and effective pacing, as well as the importance of visual storytelling. I wouldn’t trade my college education for anything in the world!

I enjoy writing dark, poignant romances that challenge the reader’s emotions and explore the redeeming power of love. Writing is my life’s blood, my passion, my greatest obsession and pleasure. I’ve been imagining stories and characters ever since I was a wee child. Before I learned to physically read or write, my mom would jot them down for me. I hold a special affinity for the tortured hero and unconventional romances. Whether crafting the protagonist or antagonist, I ensure that every character is fully realized and given a soul!

My dream is to move readers and leave an emotional impact through my words. ♥
