I like to craft a dash of magic into emotionally-resonant stories. Though none of my characters are directly inspired by my life, there is a little bit of me in each of them. Growing up amid the mountains and national parks of southern Utah, I have a love of rich settings, unique people, classical music, and, of course, reading. I am married to the boy I’ve known since I was seven, am mom to three kids, and holds my Master’s degree in Education.
As the coordinator for the experiential education center at Southern Utah University, I am passionate about seeking opportunities to help others. When I’m not writing, reading, or educating others, I can be found accompanying at the local Suzuki program, serving as an editor and board member with the Women’s Fiction Writers Association, driving (and being driven by) my teen/tween kids to dance, track, or music lessons, or staring in the fridge trying to come up with something that resembles dinner. I am represented by Annelise Robey of The Jane Rotrosen Agency.
