Though I was not born here, Colorado is my home and has been since the age of 4. I started writing early; at that time I enjoyed seeing others response to the stories I told, I didn't realize writing was a part of me, and the thing that I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Now that I am older, I have set goals, and I am reaching them. As a writer, I hope and plan to go far. I look forward to stealing hearts and captivating the mind with amazing stories.

I live in Monument, CO. My husband went to the Air Force Academy and we own a centennial ranch in Collbran, CO. I am a fiction writer and a South Texas native.
After moving to Europe for three years, I returned and was fortunate to have lived in many U.S. cities. I called the Bay Area home for ten years before settling in colorful Colorado.

I am a self-proclaimed music trivia champion, inventor of Dirty Scrabble, and a Mini Cooper enthusiast.
