I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Poems, short stories, and now finally full-length novels. I've always loved books. Reading is a thing of magic. It has allowed me to enter into worlds I never would have known. I've cried, laughed, and been scared right alongside my favorite characters. And my hope is that one day kids will do the same for my characters. I want kids to see that reading is one of the greatest gifts. Luckily, my daughter already agrees with me!
My full-length middle grade and young adult works are represented by Lauren Hammond of ADA Management.

In an alternate universe, I am Dr. Who’s faithful companion, traveling through time with him and constantly rearranging furniture on the TARDIS. I am also Oprah’s best friend and Ellen’s favorite Friday night poker buddy. And did I mention that I have legs that would make Giselle Bundchen hang her head down in shame? In this one, I am a five foot two rabid Dr. Who fan (I miss you David Tennant) who still can’t imagine her life without the Oprah show, but is consoling herself with large dosesof Ellen and bread pudding.

I fell in love with Europe’s cobbled streets and damp castles when I moved to the Netherlands as a teenager. Since then, I have spent nights huddled next to my backpack on a Greek beach, honeymooned in Paris, and attended business meetings in Dusseldorf in the pleasant company of a corporate credit card. Before Ever After was inspired by my experiences living, studying and traveling through Europe. This is my first novel.
