I'm an award-winning YA and NA author... but, really? I'm the wife of an amazing man, mom of four awesome kids, a reader of words, and writer of stories. I love candles and books, think garden gnomes are creepy and M&Ms are the perfect food (especially peanut butter).
I live and write in North Carolina, but was raised in Flint, Michigan, which means I say "pop" not "soda" and "you guys" instead of the "y'all" favored by most in the south. But no matter where I roam, I will always think of the Great Lakes state as home.
Olivia and Jai by Rebecca Ryman and Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls. They are the books that inspired me to become a storyteller.
