I was raised in suburban Central Kentucky in a family full of right-brainers. With a photographer/artist for a grandfather and an author/illustrator for a mother, I was bound to wind up on the creative side of the spectrum. I honed my writing skills in school, earning high praise and winning awards for my essays and short stories. I tried my hand at about every sport imaginable, which only went to prove that my efforts were better spent in other creative outlets such as art, singing, and writing. But it was writing that really stuck with me and I spent the next several years trying my hand at writing fiction novels, just for the fun of it.
I took a break for a while and focused on putting myself through paralegal school while raising two amazing Irish twin girls. I quickly learned that being a certified paralegal was the best career choice I could have made. On top of all of the cool cases I have worked on over the years, I was able to write original legal documents autonomously. When a national magazine for attorneys approached me in 2013 to write a short story for them about the life of a paralegal, I jumped at the opportunity. When the article was published and garnered me some amazing feedback, I realized how much I missed writing for leisure. I sat down and wrote my very first full-length fiction novel that year and haven’t stopped writing since.
I love reading all genres, folk music, caramel macchiatos, puppies, thunderstorms, antique jewelry, dragonflies, and the color purple (not the movie).
My debut novel, LIKE FATHER, LIKE DAUGHTER was named Suspense Finalist for the 2017 Indie Excellence Awards!
I live in central Kentucky with my two teenage daughters, an extremely intelligent Aussie, and a very fat cat.
