I was born in Utah, but migrated to Arizona, Missouri, and Virginia before settling in Idaho.

Though I dabbled in writing throughout school, being an author seemed like an unattainable dream. It took me seven years to write my first book, Just Ella. During that time, I taught myself how to write a novel. Not the most time effective method, but it gave me an education I wouldn’t have received from a class or a how-to book. Something about the struggle of writing without a formula or rules worked for me.

I write clean romance because I love it. Jane Eyre is the hero of my youth and taught me that clinging to your convictions will be hard, but will bring you more genuine happiness than giving in ever can.

I love that they play and have fun together, and TALK. They build a relationship instead of just being physically attracted to one another.(less)

I don't usually like reformed rake stories—they usually seem disingenuous at best and slimy at worst. However this one worked. The motivation for change, both before the story and during, made sense and it felt like a realistic progression. The roman ...more

This might be my favorite in the series. I loved both the main characters, and was drawn in by the conflicts, the chemistry, and the bravery.
Lovely, romantic, clean.

“You were the one choice I made for myself. And that one choice was taken away from me, because the night I realized I was in love with you was the same night you left.”
Annette K. Larsen, Just Ella

“he’s the other half of my heart.” I shrugged a little, knowing it sounded fanciful and romanticized. “I can’t be myself without him.”
Annette K. Larsen, Just Ella

“Nothing is completely safe. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth it.”
Annette K. Larsen, Missing Lily

“Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! - I have as much soul as you, - and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you!”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“People liked religion but they didn't want to have to exercise any faith. Religion was comforting with all its structure and its rules. It made people feel safe. But faith wasn't safe. Faith was hard and uncomfortable and forced people to step out on a limb.”
Amy Harmon, The Law of Moses
