Meet the Author

Originally from California, I currently reside four miles from downtown Cincinnati with three badly behaved pets, two delightfully challenging children, and one incredibly supportive soul mate.


Since high school, I have bummed around Europe, learned Italian, found a job that I love, and written three novels for teens.


Things that haven’t changed since high school: my love of punk rock and Mohawks; infatuation with John Hughes films; feeling like I don’t fit in (unfortunately it doesn’t end with high school) and a love affair with Jane Austen.


Things that have changed since high school: love of rollercoasters (not so fun when you get old); having free time; finally knowing what fulfills me as an individual; not caring so much that I don’t fit in.

This was a beautiful short story of discovery, hope, and love in its purest form. It is quick read and left me smiling.

Disclaimer: I was a beta reader for this project. I loved the concept, and the writing was beautifully executed. Like many other readers, my only wish was that the author would take this concept from a short story into a full-length novel. Maybe someday...

I give this a four only because I wanted more. Great Idea would love to see this as a full novel.

This story is written with lush, vivid language that pulls you in from page one. The concept is original, the characters vibrant, and the plot moves quickly to the perfect conclusion. Highly recommend!

This story caught my attention from the beginning and kept me turning the pages until I finished it. I really enjoyed the style of writing. Some of the scenes had unique words that I enjoyed reading.  The Way life was forever is about a girl, named Lyra, who lives in a settlement underground. Her settlement only comes out at night because of fear of the Sun-dwellers (flesh-eating people.) When her little sister decides she wants to break away and see the sun Lyra has to run and find her before the vaults close, and the Sun-dwellers come out. Lyra finds herself in an unexpected situation where everything she believed is turned upside down. (Possibly a spoiler here) A couple times I thought ‘People wouldn’t just instantly fall in love’, but then I thought about the fact that these are teenagers and yes, they probably would after being holed up in their camps for so long. Very well written little story!
