I was born and raised in sunny California with my five siblings and now spend my days under the bright blue skies of North Carolina with my loving husband and three rambunctious dogs. I love chocolate, but who doesn’t? I hate slow drive-thru lines, especially when they stand between me and the diet coke I am craving.
I received a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from North Carolina State University. I had planned to continue on with law school, but instead, after raising a family, exploring multiple diverse career paths and at least as many different hair colors, I found a passion for writing young adult novels! For me, the most important components of a great story are an interesting character, loads of suspense, and a dash of romance.
