I love the smell of ink on legal pads and the sweet songs of rain.

I’m an author and creative warrior. My writing career spans four published books, several short stories, and an emerging comic series. My published novels, The Animal Court and Foreign & Domestic Affairs are about a king and queen’s struggle to maintain power over the country that they love. Foreign & Domestic Affairs was featured in the 54th annual San Diego Public Library’s Local Author Showcase. My collection of horror short stories, Tiny Dreadfuls, is being hailed as a spooky-good time, and the creative-non-fiction, Lost Aboard I co-authored with my writing partner, Theresa Halvorsen, is about San Diego’s historical landmark, Star of India.

Looking for even more peaks behind the pen? Check out my podcast, Cheers, Dears! where I interviewed authors about their creative journeys.

I am a member of the Horror Writers Association, San Diego Writers Ink, and served as the President of the San Diego Writers & Editors Guild. 

In an effort to help other authors and creatives on their journeys, I co-starred in the writing-podcast, Semi-Sages of the Pages, available on all of your favorite podcast apps. While I’m no longer on the podcast, the other Sages continue to share their stories and tips on author life! I am also the co-founder and Creative Director of the publishing company No Bad Books Press, so if you have any publishing questions, check out our website or drop me a note below! 

To stay up to date on my creative projects, follow me on TikTok and sign up to receive insights from my weekly newsletter.  I love meeting new people and am available for Zoom and Skype Interviews, meetings, or book club events. To schedule an event, drop me a line in the contact box below!
