About Me

I live in Minnesota with my three dogs Isley, Sawyer, and Swayze, my cat Squeak (RIP Nikki and Sophie), my chinchilla Hans Gruber, my husband Mike and my stepson Gavin. I do many things, but the thing I get paid to do is write novels.

I enjoy Jim Henson, folklore and mythology, dinosaurs, Sims 4, cartoons, animals, and dark romance novels.

I have published seven different series, with over twenty-five published works. As of right now, two of my series and one standalone novel are self-published, and the rest are with a traditional publisher. My zombie series, The Hollows, has been adapted into a graphic novel by Dynamite.

My most recent books THE LOST CITY, THE MORNING FLOWER, and THE EVER AFTER are in the Omte Origins - the final trilogy that ends the Trylle Saga.

I have a gothic romance and a Greek mythology retelling planned for later in 2021, but I will have more info to come in the future.
