About Me

Writer, Student, Mother, Wife, Coffee House Enthusiast, Hockey Fan, Penguins Fan, Amateur Conspiracy Theorist, Obsessively Punctual, Lover of the Opera ...

I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. In fact, I can tell you exactly the book that convinced me to become a writer. Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews. I was eleven years old when I read the novel, and I became so overwhelmed with the idea of creating characters and stories that readers could love the way I loved Flowers in the Attic, that I started writing my first novel shortly thereafter.

Fortunately for you all, that eleven year old little girl's work will never be published, but it started my love affair with writing and diving into worlds and characters that I could get lost in. In 2015, I published my first book, On the Other Side of Aether, and am working to bring the whole series to print by the start of 2019 (that's five more books!).

Outside of writing, and as my introductory line suggests, I'm a super busy person. I recently graduated with a bachelor's degree in social work and am pursuing a master's degree starting this fall. When I'm not in school or working at my family-owned restaurant, I can be found shouting near-obscenities at hockey games on television or occasionally finding the time to see a Live at the Met in HD performance at my local theater. Oh, and next month, I start a full-time position in my dream job where I get to put my bachelor's degree to work and make a difference in my community.

Sounds like utter chaos, right? No? Well throw in a husband, a son, and a rescue dog (read that my best friend and world's greatest most amazing Rosa Ponderosa), and you can see how chaos often ensues.
