As a kid, my world revolved around two things: stories and make believe. I have built a real life around those two things as well: I am a teacher of stories and a writer of make believe.

While I went to high school in a small town in Oregon and college in a smaller town in Oregon - both gifted me with treasures to fill my creative reservoir and most importantly, my husband. We got married, I followed him from Oregon to Hawaii (it was that or forgo the marriage).

We have two children, and several furry kids.

I read and write everyday.

A great question (And I'm sorry I'm only seeing it now). All of the books occur in the same universe. The Stories Stars Tell is a stand alone (and was written first), but the main character from In the Echo of this Ghost Town is in The Stories Stars Tell as a secondary character (and is a jerk). You can read them both on their own without the other, but for additional perspective starting with The Stories Stars Tell will make you hate the main character of In the Echo of this Ghost Town worse. :) When the Echo Answers is a companion to In the Echo of this Ghost Town (the female character's perspective of the same story) so I would suggest reading it last.(less)

For example: don't sweep the doorway at night. There's a tale of a aswang (a vampire in Filipino culture) that is said to roam the village near where I live, or there's a man-dog werewolf a few valleys over. So many ideas that are both terrifying and creatively intriguing.(less)

In the Echo of This Ghost Town: Thanksgiving Scene

In honor of the season of Giving Thanks, I thought I’d share one of the two Thanksgiving scenes I’ve ever written. One of those two scenes is in The Letters She Left Behind, but I’m sharing the one from In the Echo of this Ghost Town . To give you a bit of a recap, Griffin and Max are friends (they met during the summer) and have continued their friends

Too Superficial for me

I like my stories with a bit more depth and polish. While I enjoy a fated-mate alien story, this was rushed, lacked character development and could have used a bit more plot. Because of those reasons, it was hard to connect to t

So addicting

I loved this series so much. I would find myself thinking about it long after I’d closed the book, the need to return strong. Awesome world, wonderful characters, great banter, steamy spice. Loved it.

Addicting series

I can’t get enough of this series. The world, the characters, the high stakes, the love story, the spice. Everything about it is perfect (except for the covers. I hate the covers).

Love this series. Addicting.

It isn’t the best written and there are a plethora of editorial mistakes, but I can’t get enough of this series. It’s fun and campy not taking itself too seriously. The characters are a so much fun even with all their fru

Ernest Hemingway
“But sometimes when I was starting a new story and I could not get it going, I would sit in front of the fire and squeeze the peel of the little oranges into the edge of the flame and watch the sputter of blue that they made. I would stand and look out over the roofs of Paris and think, 'Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now. All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.' So finally I would write one true sentence, and then go on from there.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
