The Long Version:
I graduated with Department Honors from the University of San Diego with a degree in English. While working to earn my teaching credential, I was a legal assistant for an attorney. That’s about the time I finally married my high school sweetheart. Once I received my credential from USD, I taught high school English until I had my first child.
Currently I am a stay-at-home mom. I have three kids, one large dog, a gecko, hamster, and a HUGE sulcata tortoise.
Several years ago, I entered a writing contest about motherhood and won. My satirical essay, “Caution: Warning Lable Not Included!” was published in the anthology Manual for Motherhood. This sparked my need to write on a daily basis, and I have been writing ever since!
My debut young adult novel The Voice was published by Lands Atlantic in January 2013. The Voice is a finalist in the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards: Young Adult Category (dubbed the Sundance of the book publishing world), and the winner of the 2013 San Diego Book Awards: Best Young Adult Book.
My next adventure, The True Reign Series, is a young adult fantasy series. It consists of three books (The Key, Red, and War), all now available. The Key was a finalist in the USA Best Book Awards in 2014. I have written a spin-off series entitled Reign of Secrets. The first book, Cage of Deceit, takes place approximately twenty years after the end of War. The second book, Cage of Darkness, is listed in Publishers Weekly as being one of Smashwords’ best-selling books in June 2017. The third book in the series, Cage of Destiny, is now available.
I’ve always had a passion for reading and writing. Being transported into another world and experiencing things beyond my imagination–what could be better? Besides being an outlet and a love, I hope to write books that encourage all to read.
