She has a master’s degree in philosophy from Georgetown University, but has always returned to her passion for writing.

When not writing, she can be found gaming, seeking out new restaurants to try, or drinking ridiculous, fancy coffee.

Be advised this is a dark read and not for everyone. This was an okay read for me, it was hard for me to get a feeling for the characters. The story held my interest but I would say this is not what I would consider a BDSM read as I doubt this would be considered safe.
