Legend has it, I was born with a book in my hands. When I was a kid, my mom would ground me from reading in order to get me to do my chores. My dad — also an avid reader — introduced me to Tolkien in my late elementary years, and I never looked back. I love escaping to worlds where magic and monsters are real, especially stories with kick-butt heroines and dangerously attractive heroes. 

Despite my voracious book appetite, I didn’t start creative writing until I was working as a number cruncher in a big accounting firm. With an hour plus commute by train every day, and a demanding left-brain occupation, I needed a mobile creative outlet. A pen and paper are about as mobile as it gets! As the pages began to fill, I quickly moved onto a tiny laptop, and a writer was born. 

Nowadays, I'm a stay-at-home-mom who prefers a good story over doing the dishes. I live in Southern California with my wonderfully supportive husband, two daughters, and a ridiculously energetic dog. You’ll find me squinting at my computer screen late at night, spinning my own fantasy adventures in those precious few hours when the house is quiet. 

I am the award-winning author of The Sanyare Chronicles, and Content Director for O.C. Writers, A Network of Published and Aspiring Authors.
