I love writing fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary fiction for young adults and middle grade readers. I am currently querying a middle grade fantasy book while dreaming of more exciting books!

A few of my favorite writers are Veronica Roth, Emily Rodda, Kate DiCamillo, Leigh Bardugo, Tae Keller, Rebecca K.S. Ansari, Adrianna Cuevas, Jaclyn Moriarty, and Madeleine L’Engle.

When I’m not writing or reading, I am an acupuncturist and a mother of four energetic readers (my youngest sleeps with her books). I enjoy biking and baking and am obsessed with high tea. I also have a special place in my heart for live theatre. Once upon a time, I was a scuba diving instructor. I still dream of helping conservation groups clean up the ocean.

I hold a bachelor’s in Cultural & Social Anthropology from Stanford University, a master’s in Oriental Medicine, and a doctorate in Metaphysics. I live in Colorado and am a member of Northern Colorado Writers.
