I grew up in San Diego, California and spent my days writing in local coffee shops and at the beach. My writing was and has always been fed a healthy diet of chai tea lattes and film scores.

I studied Creative Writing at Chapman University and now live in Los Angeles.

My book Mara was released August 2013 and is now available. The sequel, Miyuki, debuted April 2014.
