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 thirty published works, including the New York Times Bestselling Trylle Saga, the Watersong Saga, My Blood Approves, Valkyrie Duology, the Hollows, and the Seven Fallen Hearts. My zombie series, The Hollows, has been adapted into a graphic novel by Dynamite.

I am currently working on the next books in the Seven Fallen Hearts Saga and the Hollows series.
