I was raised in both Alaska and Scotland, but currently live in Vermont; when not writing, I can usually be found outside swimming, skiing or hiking across the state’s famous green mountains. Driven by my fascination with Greek archaeology and mythology, I sought to breathe new life to the forgotten and often underappreciated Greek myths. My YA debut about ancient Greece, tentatively titled DAUGHTER OF SPARTA, is forthcoming in spring of 2021.

Garth Stein
“To live every day as if it had been stolen from death, that is how I would like to live. To feel the joy of life, as Eve felt the joy of life. To separate oneself from the burden, the angst, the anguish that we all encounter every day. To say that I am alive, I am wonderful, I am. I am. That is something to aspire to. When I am a person, that is how I will live my life.”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

Isabel Allende
“She did not believe that the world was a vale of tears but rather a joke that God had played and that it was idiotic to take it seriously.”
Isabel Allende, The House of the Spirits

Diana Gabaldon
“You forget the life you had before, after awhile. Things you cherish and hold dear are like pearls on a string. Cut the knot and they scatter across the floor, rolling into dark corners never to be found again. So you move on, and eventually you forget what the pearls even looked like. At least, you try.”
Diana Gabaldon, Outlander

George R.R. Martin
“Love is poison. A sweet poison, yes, but it will kill you all the same.”
George R.R. Martin

H.G. Wells
“Sometimes, you have to step outside of the person you've been and remember the person you were meant to be. The person you want to be. The person you are.”
H.G. Wells

Minni Mouse Haha, I just want to say that I like the people you follow. Every time you "like" someone's book status or review, it shows up on my Updates feed...so I'll read that person's review as well and then I'll think, "Hey, that was a pretty good review! I think I'll follow them, too!" So if you see that I'm slowly starting to follow the people you follow...now you know why! :)
