About this author

I like stories.

I grew up in Hawaii, went to school in Chicago, and now live in Hollywood, working in TV by day and writing by night.

My first series was a paranormal young adult trilogy from KTeen. The books are OTHERKIN, OTHERMOON, and OTHERSPHERE. What started off as the story about a girl with a back brace who discovers she can shift into a tiger became a saga of love, adventure, and friendship.

My next series begins with THE NOTORIOUS PAGAN JONES, which will be out June, 2015 from Harlequin Teen. It's an historical thriller about a disgraced teenage movie star who gets caught up in the intrigue and danger of Berlin in 1961, just as the Wall goes up.

“Bad things cycle round and round. Those who were harmed seek to harm. Those who were blamed seek to blame. If we all choose to do otherwise, maybe someday it will stop.”
Nina Berry, Two and Twenty Dark Tales: Dark Retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes

“She Snores," said Siku, looking at me. "You better get earplugs. That kind of thing runs in the family."

I opened my mouth, glancing at Caleb, whose eyes got wide in disbelief. Had Siku made a joke? I was too dumbfounded to reply.”
