I am an award-winning short story writer, novelist, and 24/7 geek. If I could live anywhere, it would either be New Zealand (near the Shire) or Batuu (Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland). I love being a mom of three young kids who challenge, inspire, and often deprive her of sleep. I write in several genres including science fiction, epic fantasy, thrillers, and mysteries; and for adults, middle-grade, and young adults.
