ABOUT ME

I was born and raised in Germany with three siblings until my family moved back to the United States in 2008. For as long as I can remember, I had always had a passion for horses, but I believe my greatest love is to write stories. 
 

When I was little, I would re-tell some of my favorite Bible stories through illustrations and share them with my family and young children. As I grew older, my God-given gift of storytelling blossomed as I penned my own stories, often featuring horses or "horse-like" characters that would pop up in my imagination.
 

In 2010, a 9th grade English extra-credit project led me to the creation of my first book ever to be published: The Miraculous Birth, the first of my children's fantasy series "Light Horse Dark Horse". And I have been writing ever since.
 

Today, I live in the country outskirts of Tyrone, Georgia with my two fur-baby cats, Leo and Lilly. I'm even holding on to my life-long dream that God will one day bless me with my very own horse.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy horseback riding (western and bareback), chocolate,walks around nature, cowgirl boots, movies, and, of course, reading fantasy fiction. Works by Jaye L. Knight, Jill Williamson, R.J. Larson, Gillian Bronte Adams, and Patrick W. Carr are among my top favorites and inspirations.
