I've been an avid reader practically since birth (my parents claim I often kept them up until nearly midnight, begging to hear just one more book), but for many years the stories in my imagination never made it to the page. It wasn't until I left my career as a lawyer to become a stay-at-home mom that I discovered my passion for writing fiction. What began as a hobby quickly turned into a dream of becoming a published author.

I write light fantasy with a strong thread of romance. While not all my story ideas derive from a particular fairy tale, I hope to always provide my readers with the satisfaction of a "happily ever after." My favorite authors include Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Shannon Hale, Melanie Dickerson, and Gail Carson Levine, but I enjoy a wide range of classics, romance, and fantasy in its many forms.

I'm a Midwestern girl through and through, currently residing in Minnesota with my husband and three children. I'm always up for a good chat about books or movies, and I love to connect with fellow readers and writers!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
