About this author

I am a Pacific Northwesterner who loves the mountains, evergreen trees, and the ocean. A perfect mix of rain and sunshine keeps me happy in my little corner of the world - never too hot and never too cold and only the occasional snowfall! I am married to my soulmate, have two awesome kids, and love teaching. Family time and sit-down dinners are a MUST in our crazy, busy schedule. Summers are the best, because that means more time for reading and writing!

Amethyst , my first novel, and the first in the Guardian Series, is a spell-binding, young adult, urban fantasy laced with paranormal elements and a love story. You can download the eBook for FREE at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and iBooks.

Linked , is the second novel in the Guardian

Whoo Hoo!! Book 3 in the Guardian series, Dentelle , is published and ready to download at Amazon and Smashwords right now. Today Monday, August 5th, 2013.

Should take a couple days before it goes live at Barnes & Noble, and then a week or twofor Sony oriBooks - that's how long it takes to get transferred there from Smashwords.

Thanks for waiting! Enjoy! Let me know what you think.

I actually laughed a lot and enjoyed this book. You just have to get past the stereotyping of gifted kids and normal kids, and you'll probably like it too.

Heather Bowhay and 1 other person liked Holly's review of Ungifted:
Ungifted by Gordon Korman

I borrowed this book from a student who had liked it, and since I teach gifted kids, I wanted to read it. I also read some criticism about it on a gifted education website, so I was curious about that. I thought the premise of the story was funny..." Read more of this review »

Well, I grew up seeing Ivan often, as my dad loved to shop at the B&I. So, Ivan holds a special place in my heart, and this book captures how I imagine Ivan felt in that awful cage. He always looked so sad, lonely, and bored. My 4th and 5th grade ...more

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
"I wanted to like this book more than I did. Overall, I found the book to be melancholy and the characters little too anthropomorphic. I think the story could have been richer if it hadn't humanized the characters so much. Even so, it was a fast re..." Read more of this review »

I'm sorry, I don't think I've ever given a book a one star. But this was so dumbed-down, ridiculous and so unoriginal, I'm flabbergasted.
