ABOUT books - the bio
The worlds between pages have long been a respite for me. I began reading at three and never stopped. My love of story translated to writing, and in 2013, during a self-imposed sabbatical, I started working on my first book. That’s when I conceptualized, outlined, and wrote the initial chapters of LOVE TEST which sat in the virtual drawer for six years.
In 2018, I picked the manuscript back up and have since written four books and a poetry collection. In 2019, my novels were featured by the Willamette Writers, as part of a promotion for the Portland Book Festival. In 2020, I was included in the Hillsboro Library, Author Showcase, and was awarded a grant by Literary Arts through the Brian Booth Fund for Writers.
My stories hope to shed light on the power and strength of women, demonstrating the greatness that society and even ourselves can reduce. I appreciate characters who make choices based on what they want and not out of need. Peer through my hopeful lens and together we will escape.
P.S. It's a proven fact that nothing bad ever happens when one is reading a book.
P.S.S. Stay tuned for what's coming next and be flexible, life sometimes sends us curve-balls.
