It all begins with an idea.​

Once the voices become louder, my hands become a vessel and worlds slowly bloom.

I make an effort to utilize minorities as my character leads in the books I write. I feel this is my calling. How ​many times have I, myself, searched high and low for romance/dark romance... or any book for that mater... ​that had characters I could relate to? Only to come up with very few or none at all.

It shouldn’t have to be this way.​

I want to be able to bring these worlds to the people who aren’t normally heard. I want to be able to be an ​open enough indie author to always be an ear for those who need it - to be able to create something ​beautiful my readers can be proud to be a part of.​

The Person Behind the Page

I was born in a refugee camp when my family finally made it to freedom from autogenocide and labor camps.

I am now a wife to a wonderful husband, mother to two amazing munchkins (one on the spectrum), and a doggy momma. I’m an Occupational Therapist by profession, now a SAHM and author.

I am a reader first and foremost, like most of you. The ability to lose yourself in the page. I enjoy a wide variety of books from light and fluffy reads to books that are pitch black and dripping with blood. I love monsters and things that go bump in the night.


Art as a form of escape.

Art as a form of communication.

Art as a form of coping.

The power of words.

And now, it's my turn to breathe words into life.
