Who I am, what I write about, and so on.

You’re probably here to learn more about the books or about me, so let’s get right to it.

A bit about me

I write about worlds that are only two flaps of a butterfly’s wing away from reality, and while the twisty plots are full of action–things blow up, burn down, and dissolve into puddles of goo–the outcomes hinge on acts of compassion and cooperation

The characters you’ll meet in my stories know the cost of hope and the weight of despair. They find safety and shelter with one another, fitting together at their broken places to become stronger together. Their big victories grow from small acts of kindness and understanding.

Nitty-gritty details about my professional background can be found on my official Author Bio page, just a click away on the top menu. If we meet in real life, you’ll find I am short, squeaky, and energetic, with a thirty-percent chance of loud. Other attributes are subject to change without warning.

My personal emblem is a phoenix, symbolizing my periodic reinventions of myself, and my motto is Spes Semper Vincit, which I choose to translate as Hope Over All or “Hope wins in the end.”

Finally, here is a picture of me. It isn’t current, but it was accurate when it was taken. The horse’s name was Sophie. She was feisty. We got along.
