I was born and raised in Canada, before relocating to Washington State. As the youngest child of four, I often had more words left to say when everyone was done listening. So began my journey into writing. I’ve dipped into many creative writing forms; including short stories, poetry, and writing my first full length novel at the age of 15.

After taking a short break from writing while my children were young, I studied at Long Ridge Writer’s Group. I have spent the last several years honing my craft, reading, and writing with a vengeance. For me personally, I feel the ability to write a satisfying story comes from three things; a God given talent, a passion, and lots of hard work. I’m an avid member in the writing community on Twitter and Instagram, encouraging my fellow writers with gifs, query and pitch contest critiques, and supporting their books. I am a member of my local chapter of Shut Up and Write and have a critique partner group who I meet with once a month.

I live in Bend, Oregon with my husband, three kids, an English Mastiff, and a rescue dog. I volunteer with youth and I’m a huge Paul Rudd fan! My mornings are spent slinging coffee and my nights are spent writing. When I’m not working or writing, I’m hanging out with my husband, kids, and dogs.
