I spent my formative years feeding my overactive imagination with The X-Files and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Writing stories with my best friend during my adolescence was preferable to admitting that there wasn’t any such thing as fairies or actually mustering up the courage to talk to boys.

Novel-length fiction has always been my favorite to write and to read. In addition to The Hidden Icon and The Dread Goddess, I have been published in Paper Darts Literary Magazine. Juliet Marillier’s Son of the Shadows is easily my favorite book of all time.

I live in Cincinnati, Ohio with my husband, our two sometimes-feral daughters, and a wicked costume collection.
