I read everything and anything I can get my hands on. I tend to lean toward exciting adventure with lots of romance thrown in. I love a good angsty teen read too. I want to fall in love with the characters and watch them fight for what they need in their lives. I also want the story to be fabulous diverse with social commentary forcing readers to redefine their expectations of how one lives life. I write romance based in fantasy or scifi worlds. Many of my books are #LGBTQIA+ and break societal roles we place ourselves in. Here's to an amazing world we create with every word!

Favorite Books

Classic mysteries like Agatha Christie or George Orwell really excite me. However, I do also love an adventure from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Other authors I enjoy include Kim Harrison, Lee Child, Clive Cussler, James Patterson, and Dan Brown.

Favorite Quotes

"The writer cannot be a mere storyteller; he cannot be a mere teacher; he cannot merely x-ray society's weaknesses, its ills, its peril. He or she must be actively involved in shaping its present and its future." - Ken Saro Wiwa
