Welcome to my little corner of cyber space. I hope you’ll linger for bit and take a look around.

My name might be relatively new to the writing world, but I’m not new to writing. I’ve spent much of the last eighteen years as a closet writer, honing my skills, yearning for the day when one of my manuscripts would be “perfect” enough for publication. A few years ago, using those stories as my foundation, and gripping a fresh manuscript in my hands, I ventured from my closet into the overwhelming realm of social media, critique partners, and query letters.

Thirty rejections later, I found a home with Clean Reads for my YA Christmas novel, Tinsel in a Tangle. To learn about my blundering teenage elf, who makes her debut October 3, skip on over to the Book page. If you want to read a little more about me, there’s the…you know…About page. And if you care to peek further still into my personal life, click your way into my Blog.

Like what you see here? Consider signing up to receive my newsletters from time to time, and I’ll send you a bonus chapter—let’s call it a foretaste to Tinsel—as a “thank you.” (No worries—I won’t saturate your inbox with emails. We’re talking maybe a monthly newsletter to give you my latest writing-related updates. ☺ )

Thanks for stopping by — and I hope to see you again.
