I was born in Las Vegas and raised by musicians. I followed my dad to gigs and hung out backstage with foul-mouthed entertainers and half-naked showgirls. At home, my brother burned things and liked to streak through the neighborhood. There was nothing normal about my childhood.

 

I left the desert at age 25 and moved to the tropics of Florida. Here, I started my career in technical writing and editing. I operated a medical transcription service from home while my kids were young then transitioned into the government sector to work as a contract writer. Boring, I know. And to think I could have stayed in Vegas and become a stripper.

 

I Finally found my passion writing fantasy for young adults And started sharing these stories on a reading and writing platform called WattpadAfter winning a Wattys award for my YA story, Neon Girl, I branched out into the adult romance genre. here, I found my audience and was asked to join the Wattpad Stars.

my debut romance, Lexi’s Undoing, is published with Hachette Audiobooks. My short story, Heart of Gold, is featured in The One That Got Away Anthology in Wattpad’s Paid Stories collection. I am also co-lead of the Bootcamp Mentors community profile, which helps writers polish their manuscripts for submission into the Wattys.

Note: apart from the audiobook of Lexi's Undoing, my stories are only available on Wattpad. If you find my name attached to a story that is not found on my Wattpad profile, that is not my work.
