Ever since my childhood, to fall asleep at night, I would create movies in my mind involving romance. Finding true love, or the one, has been a constant interest of mine since I can remember. When my mom would take me to the library, I chose vampire books, romantic mystery novels, and Archie Comics. The element of the push and pull of emotions drew me to these stories.
My novel writing journey began in 2009. I had a revelation after reading one of my favorite vampire series. In reader denial that the series was over, I began exploring more work from the author and read her bio. For as far back as I can remember, I have had vivid dreams. The author revealed her book idea came to her in a dream, and that’s when I asked myself, “Why am I not writing, too?”
With the family, career, and general life balancing act we all play a role in, I kept writing on the side (in secret) when I had time. I’d joined writing groups throughout the years and took classes here and there. I finally committed to the goal of publishing in 2019.

I write mostly paranormal romantic fiction. Some of my more recent work is dark romance. I write and read about what intrigues me. Life and death. Eternal love and desire. Duality. Spirituality. Cross-cultural connections. My books are for anyone who enjoys getting lost in stories where characters feel relatable and powerful. They are for people who long for a new love connection, are curious about the meaning of life, or are eager to discover how each character’s path has a twisted link to the end goal.
I’m excited that you’re on this writing and reading journey with me. Keep in touch by subscribing to my Author Updates Community.
