I was born in sunny southern California and have lived here all my life. I have been reading and writing stories since I can remember. I loved book projects at school and this inspired me to continue making them at home. My early stories were fun and fanciful and full of fairies. As I grew older, more serious subjects began to steal my interest. TORN reflects the time period between high school and my early twenties. TORN is a Young Adult novel written for older teens (17+) and deals with high school students who are coping with issues of sexual orientation and finding themselves. It took me 5 years to complete the novel since I was caring for my grandmother at the time. It was another 9 years before I decided to publish it. I enjoy writing for young adults and for the LGBT community. I am currently working on a sequel to TORN.
