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, hot Texas summers trapped indoors, 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. Rosamunde Pilcher's The Shell Seekers touched my tender heart at a formative age. I have a passion for voices from my native South: Maya Angelou, Harper Lee.

All of these books influenced the kind of stories I love to write, myself:  tales that touch the heart and rouse the spirit. I'm a sucker for a sweet love story with just the right hint of spice, as well as tales that explore complex family relationships over time.


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.
