As a teenager, I read way too many romances, little realizing I was actually preparing for a career. After a detour through various genres, I've returned to my first love. Several of my Fada Shapeshifter novels have finaled in prestigious contests and Ensnared: Star (Vampire Blood Courtesans) was a Night Owl Reviews Top Pick. I've also won awards in poetry and literary fiction, most of which featured—of course!—a romance in some way. 

When I'm not in my writing cave dreaming up stories about dark shifters, sexy fae and other magical creatures, I can be found taking photos (which I frequently post on Instagram), walking or biking with my husband, or wrestling the weeds in my yard. The weeds are winning.

I have a B.A. in philosophy and have taught yoga to everyone from soldiers to recovering addicts. I'm still trying to figure out what my superpower is, but I disappear into books and I'm a speed reader.
