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.

LOVED! Camden may be my favorite of Rebecca's heroes. I could absolutely feel Prue's frustration when she had so much that she wants to say but she just couldn't get it out. Their interactions were adorable and I was cheering them on the entire time.

“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.”

“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
