About this author

I write middle-grade, YA, and am also an illustrator with my eyes set on some picture books in the future life of my career. My middle-grade novel, The City Beneath the Stones, is a available as an e-book on Amazon.com. My YA novel, Juggernaut - a modern retelling of a teen growing up in pre-WWII Nazi Germany - is finally complete, and on submission (fingers crossed!)

Working as a Graphic Designer never satisfied me, but losing my job was a blessing in disguise. Writing feels right to me and I'd never trade it for what I had. Ever. I'd love to meet and online-chill with other authors, especially in my chosen genres, so add me if you like, I don't bite - hard. ;)
