I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, and have been living in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2008. From the time I could pick up a crayon, I spent the long Texas summers writing fiction.
As a child, I devoured and regurgitated the entire Ramona Quimby, Anne of Green Gables, and Little House on the Prairie series. Once I got a little older, I discovered the classics: Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and anything by Jane Austen. I have a passion for voices from my native South: Maya Angelou, Harper Lee.
I have a bachelor's degree in English composition from the University of North Texas. When I'm not writing, I'm raising three sassy daughters and saving the world one calorie at a time as a Registered Dietitian.
