How do you pronounce your name?


Where are you from?

I was born in Massachusetts. Grew up in Nebraska. Lived in Colorado. And now reside in Texas.


How long have you been writing?

There was a writing contest in 6th grade. I wrote a story about two cousins who get lost in a cave. I won a Nebraska Young Author's award for that book. I've written in one form or another since then with lyrics (lots of songs), screenplays, poems, and short stories. But I didn't start writing a novel until 2015.


What are some of your favorite things?

The colors: green, yellow, and gray. Autumn, comfy clothing, trees, reading, and better yet--reading underneath a tree in the fall in comfy clothes. And also pizza with ranch dressing, guacamole, and bendy cookies--but not together. Long talks with my deep-thinking husband and cuddling with our mostly cuddly cat.
