Hello readers & welcome to my whimsical and bookish space on the web.

I'm a creator, a dreamer, & a bibliophile.

I've been lost in my imagination since I was a kid, and I have notebooks, random blogs, and word documents full of ideas and stories. But, it wasn’t until I started writing novels that I really felt like a writer.

Writing and telling stories are the call of my heart, though I currently work as a full time high school English teacher, where getting books into the hands of my students is the most important work I can do.

the other important things 

Beyond writing stories, I'm a daughter of Christ, married to a pretty cool guy, and we reside in the Midwest with our two literary dachshunds, Darth Daisy the Doxie Lord and Gatsby-Frodo-Padfoot-Dobby Lore. I know. He is quite ridiculous. But he also prefers his shorter title, Gatsby the Great Doxie.
