About Me

By day I am a mild-mannered teacher of high school literature and creative writing. By night I am a clandestine writer, fighting battles against time and responsibility to steal precious moments in which to compose the next few lines of my novel-in-progress.

I grew up in Roswell, New Mexico but graduated high school and moved to college one year before the city’s alien visitations became nationally renown. Currently, I live in Texas with my husband, sons, and entirely too many pets.

An avid reader of fantasy literature since the age of ten, I am especially inspired by the novels of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Madeline L’Engle, Tad Williams, and Neil Gaiman, among many others. My desire to write manifested in middle school, but was buried under the well-meant warnings of concerned adults, so I decided to study physics, instead. My freshman year in college began with courses in honors English, and remedial college algebra. Two semesters of immense success in my literature classes and abysmal failure in remedial math convinced me that I was not designed to be a scientist, so I changed my major and returned to my first love.

    • Thank you! If there’s more you would like to see about writing, especially YA/NA fantasy, I’m open to suggestions.
