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!)

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. ;)

In turn, I also didn’t just like certain boys over others because they were considered “hot”, although I’d have to say that some of the guys I dated definitely were. I...
