About Me

Short Bio:

YA author. I graduated with a degree in Biology from Old Dominion University, a Master’s in Education, Curriculum & Instruction from the University of Phoenix, and an Education Specialist degree in Educational Leadership from Old Dominion University. A high school administrator by day, I spend what little free time I have with my family, decompressing with a good book, (typically contemporary romance), or plotting my own shipworthy characters who want their own HEA. I live in Northern Virginia with my husband, two children, and a small zoo of animals that consists of cats, dogs, fish, and birds. 

Unofficial, Much Longer Bio: 

I am a self-proclaimed nerd who would love nothing more than to see the world through book store windows. I’m married and the mother of two amazing Neaglets (Oldest: Evil Genius | Youngest: Mini Me). I consider myself to be a forward-thinker, which makes conversations very interesting when certain topics open for discussion. I love tattoos and have many of them. I don’t regret them, and no, I won’t hate them when I’m 80.

I am a high school administrator having worked in education for 15+ years. I’ve taught grades 6-11 Biology and Ecology in both urban and suburban school systems. Since COVID, I’ve gotten back into reading. Currently, I love reading sports romance. I really enjoy audiobooks. When I’m not working, I’m attempting to finish my latest novel, better my cooking skills, or talk about TV and movies. On the ultra-rare occasion, I post them here.

From a very young age, I showed an interest in writing. Growing up in the middle of nowhere without cable (gasp!) and before everyone had internet (stop laughing, it wasn’t that long ago), I spent a lot of time reading and writing. I carried this passion into high school, where I wrote elaborate stories whenever I could. However, my writing shifted from creative to technical when I left for undergraduate and then graduate school. It wasn’t until years later that I sat down and attempted to write fiction again. My manuscript, THE LANGUAGE OF LIARS, was a 2016 RWA Daphne Finalist.
