About this author

I am a compulsive reader and writer who loves YA fiction.

I love nothing more than writing about young adults. There is something so fresh and fun about it. You can pretty much always find me with a book in my hand or open document in front of me.


I live in Southern California with my husband and two children.



I'm pretty embarrassed by the number of books I read this year. 2014 was a tough year for me in a lot of ways and that reflected in the number of books I read. There were a few great books that really stood out as my favorite reads of the year. These don't have to be books that released in 2014. They're just books I read this year.

“The moment you fall in love feels like it has centuries behind it, generations - all of them rearranging themselves so this precise, remarkable intersection could happen. In your heart, in your bones, no matter how silly you know it is, you feel that everything has been leading to this, all the secret arrows were pointing here, the universe and time itself crafted this long ago, and you are just now realizing it, you are just now arriving at the place you were always meant to be.”
David Levithan, Every Day

“There is the sudden. There is the eventual. And in between, there is the living.”
David Levithan, Two Boys Kissing

“The world is full of people who think different is synonymous with wrong.”
David Levithan, Two Boys Kissing

“And why was it that some guys had tears in them and some had no tears at all? Different boys lived by different rules.”
Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
