A little about me: I was born in Anchorage, Alaska in 1972. I grew up in Oregon, went to college in Oregon and Utah, and lived in Colorado for seven years. I currently live in Texas. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education, emphasis Sports Medicine. I’m married to a great guy and the proud Mommy of three awesome kids (now grown). I’ve been a stay-at-home-mom for most of my adult life, which is the best job ever. Now I’m looking to start a career for myself as a writer.
My love of writing stems from my love of reading. I’ve always been a great reader, devouring books from a very young age. Writing does not come easy to me and I didn’t develop a love for it until well into my adult years. In about the year 2000, I joined a writing club with some friends and tried my hand at short stories. I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed it, but my kids were young and it was hard to be consistent. After that, health problems and other life events kept me from writing often. I finally got back into writing early in 2012, setting a schedule and creating stories I’ve been proud to share for the first time.
I write Middle Grade contemporary, fantasy, and science fiction. Occasionally I write Young Adult in the same genres. I’m represented by Carlie Webber at Fuse Literary.
When I’m not writing, I like to dabble in photography, crochet, play random apps on my iPhone/iPad, take naps, do yoga (and other exercise), and watch movies. I also teach children at church on a regular basis. I am a devout Mormon.
I’m a terrible blogger.
