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.


Each month I'm spotlighting a different LGBTQ Center, hoping to spread awareness and also, linking to their Amazon wish lists in hopes of helping them get some of the supplies they need--like clothing, art supplies, activities, movies etc.

For the month of December I'm spotlighting Hetrick-Martin Institute. Their website says they work for "Empowerment, education and advocacy for LGBT youth" Th... Read more of this blog post »

Nyrae Dawn liked a quote
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
“You don't have to love someone to have sex with them.'
'I know that,' I say, trying to act like I'm not embarrassed for thinking love and sex are the same thing. I know they're not but I want them to be close enough to at least brush each other as they pass.”
Cath Crowley
Nyrae Dawn liked a quote
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
“I like that about art, that what you see is sometimes more about who you are than what’s on the wall. I look at this painting and think about how everyone has some secret inside, something sleeping like that yellow bird.”

“Everything’s not always black and white, Princess. Sometimes we have to do shit because there’s not another choice. Maybe you should think about that before you snub your nose at me.”

“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

“dreaming's the only way to get anywhere.”
