I was born in Los Angeles, but spent a few years of my childhood in boarding school in the very cold south of England. After I graduated college, I taught English for a year in Turkey then went to grad school in London.

I'm a train hopping, Miles Davis and Chopin listening, Eiffel Tower climbing, oil paintin, art galleria going, Harry Potter reading sort of person. If this means something to you, we are going to be good friends :o)


Nalia and the Potion Maker is my first YA fantasy novel. People stealing memories. Potions. Unrequited love. A villain who has a messed up childhood. Long lost love. Action. Adventure. Near death experiences. Love, betrayal, and redemption. And this is just the first book!

Description: In the once beautiful Aetheria, a spreading evil stems in the great Land of The North. It is a world that has been ravaged by vengeance and fury. But Nalia knows nothing of this world. She doesn’t even know that she bears one of its most coveted and sacred gifts, a gift that has killed many and forced others into hiding. When an unusual visitor escapes from the other world to find her, he claims that her gift is vital in order to save his world. Her task won’t be easy: find the great potion maker whose memory has been stolen, if he’s even still alive. There, Nalia meets the strong yet gentle Lyris who can heal anything with his touch. Soon she discovers that his powers run deep as he slowly begins to mend the pieces of her heart, shattered by her own tragic family and a haunting secret; a secret stemming before she was even born. A heart wrenching tale of death, betrayal, and the dark side of unrequited love.

“-The Wonderer's Dream-

Upon one lucky night I had a vision
A vision of a tree whose roots grew
Wide
Deep
and Long
And I followed it down until it lead me to another world
And in this world I learned there were worlds upon worlds
A world in which there was no slave or free
As there was nothing to be free from
This world was made of pure light
A light that radiates
In you
In me
And on the rare occasion it finds itself travelled and distant
and somehow, as luck may have it, in our world.

A poem for the Nalia Books”

“I have hands with naught to hold
And I have love with none other to give
How long will I sit here?
I turn page upon page
And it's you
You gleam then wither every page
I go further
I try to erase you
But somehow you manage to
Wrestle, fight, win
I try
Pull
Tug
But somehow you are still here
How did you get here?
You must have crossed
Moons
Stars
And galaxies
To get here
For did you not go where the dead go?”

“In night...
in night is when my mind is a flutter, and the world ablaze.
In night I see you, subtle, yet sure wrinkles in your smile and the echoes of your laugh.

In night
my mind tries to forget, but it is still there branded as etchings.

In night
my heart is set a fire thrashing to and fro from distant lands and seas.

You were a sailor but your anchor was no match for the wild waves and so you floated, but quickly sank.

And in night I write about a hundred moons and a hundred deaths. But they are all you.
For you are the sky and the wild seas.
And in night, I think, I will sail across your shore once again and once more.”
Queenbe Monyei

“You came in like rain
Washed away and drowned every last piece of me
Could you not have left me
With so much as a scrap?
Upon which I may breath, live, be, go
But instead I wonder between dreams
And faint impressions of consciousness”
