I'm a displaced New Yorker with a penchant for the silly, the obscure, and the fantastical. These days, you can find me in the Tampa area. I'm currently working on the H&W Investigations urban fantasy series and the Blackhollow Academy young adult/new adult contemporary fantasy series. Find out more about my books, drop me a line, or join my mailing list at!

“Fuck going into work today. Do you have any alcohol?”
Jess Haines, Deceived by the Others

“He’s a damned fine catch, and word on the grapevine says he’s a wonder in the sack. A walking, talking wet dream, as one of my friends put it. Ride it while the riding’s good!”
Jess Haines, Enslaved By the Others

“You can waste years trying—but you will never find that magical ‘good enough’ until you find it in yourself to stand up and accept who you are without reservation or apology.”
