I was born in the small town of Anderson, South Carolina. From a very young age, my mother fostered a love for all things books. I devoured mystery and horror as quickly as I could and wrote my first horror story in fifth grade wherein I terrified my fellow classmates with tales of the creek monster who emerged from the murky depths to tear them to shreds (the illustrations were probably a little much). Lucky for me and my friends, I grew up wanting nothing more than to be an author, rather than a sociopath.
Here you can find my digital portfolio where I mainly contribute to the YeahWrite weekly writing challenges. In early 2014, the editors at YeahWrite were gracious enough to pull me on board as a Contributing Editor and Social Media Manager. You should check them out. You won’t regret it.
Behind the scenes, I am currently working on the first novel of my Hybrid trilogy which I hope to finish in 2017. I am also working on a fantasy anthology with three other amazing writers. More details on that coming soon. I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband and our two fur-babies.
