I am a writer by night, who currently lives in San Francisco with my husband. The Inventor and His Muse is the first of many books I hope to self-publish. In my free time, I am an avid sports fan and enjoy attending hockey and baseball games. I also cosplay and attend many comic conventions on the west coast.
