Body-swapping and genies and portals--oh my! I'm a writer of clean-read Young Adult fiction who lives in the beautiful green state of Oregon, USA. My sci-fi debut, THE BODY INSTITUTE, explores themes of body image and identity. Its sequel, SPARES, released January 2021.

I have a Studio Arts degree and I'm a longtime SCBWI member. You'll usually find me in my writing cave, surrounded by my dragon collection and the characters in my head. I enjoy reading--mostly young adult novels--as well as drawing, painting, and working jigsaw puzzles. I also enjoy music and dance of all kinds.

This new book takes the loose threads from the end of book 1 and continues them from another character's point of view. But you'll find familiar characters from book 1 inside! The book is called SPARES. (less)

Release day for my new YA steampunk

I hope you enjoyed a great summer and you're transitioning into almost-fall!

I've successfully moved across-country from South Dakota to Oregon, and (finally) have had a bit of time to release my YA steampunk, THE WORD THIEVES!

This is my 12th published book, and I really enjoyed writing it.

I describe this adventure tale as The Prince and The Pauper (only with girls, not boys) meets Robin Hood.

“Your looks are an important part of who you are." He winds a lock of my hair around his finger. "You wouldn't be who you are, the same personality, if you'd grown up looking different. You're a blend of your body and your soul.”

“Your looks are an important part of who you are.” He winds a lock of my hair around his finger. “You wouldn’t be who you are, the same personality, if you’d grown up looking different. You’re a blend of your body and your soul.”
Carol Riggs, The Body Institute

“We talk about classes and the latest vids and music, topics that wash over me and leave a bitter aftertaste. It’s hard to think about fun, trivial things when the rest of my life is so twistedly wrong.”
Carol Riggs, The Body Institute

“A key to successful networking is always being on the lookout for ways to help others.”
