Meet the Author

At 14 years old, I ventured with my middle-school class to Washington, D.C., where the capital city's monuments, museums, and rich history sparked my desire to explore the world.

Eighteen years later, I embarked on a journey to fulfill a lifelong goal that most people only dream of. After quitting my job with a Fortune 500 company, I grabbed my passport and spent the next six months backpacking across 11 Latin-American countries.

I chronicled my voyage through photos and a travel blog. And upon returning home, I shared tales of magnificent adventures with my 8-year-old cousin, Destiny. The third grader was enthralled with my vivid stories.

Destiny's curiosity about the cultural, historical, and educational aspects of my trip--and her countless "what-ifs"--ultimately led to the creation of the popular book series featuring 12-year-old Sage Carrington.

I'm an adventurer at heart and impart my love of "the journey" into every Sage Carrington tale.
