Meet the Author

I'm a recent college graduate who loves traveling, eating, and eating while traveling. I majored in ancient and medieval history, which I found to be a constant source of literary inspiration as well as general fascination. I grew up loving to read and write, especially historical fiction and fantasy—anything that can open up amazing new worlds, a philosophy I try to bring to my own writing.


My profile picture and the cover of "Daughter of the Sea" (accidentally) have the same pose. The subconscious is a weird and whacky place.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    I read this when it was on fictionpress, and I am still impressed being able to read it on my Nook. The non-traditional way this book is written is refreshing and new. It's another look at a classical tale that shows a strong female character, and the trials she goes through makes her even stronger. I don't think I could give this under 5 stars, and I would recommend this book to anyone who loves classical fairy tales.

    Great read

    I found myself not being able to put it down even when L needed to get to sleep. I would love to see what happens to Selene now that her family is awake and she has no spouse. A second story would be a good idea.

    Good book very long in some spots felt myself wanting to skim over parts. Lots of twists and turns, nice different spin on a classic tale.
