The short version of me:

The long version:

I grew up the oldest of 5 girls in Utah. All growing up I loved to write, composing lots of poetry, "music lyrics", and an epic 250 page Harry Potter fanfic with my best friend. I graduated high school, married the love of my life 7 months later and started figuring out what life was about. Soon after we had our first child at the end of 2007 we moved to the place my husband grew up, Orcas Island, WA. The move was hard on me, being so far away from my family and a place that was so different from where I grew up.

And so I started writing again to help me deal. And I never stopped.

I wrote a book called Ever Burning and thought it was great.  As soon as I started writing Branded I realized it wasn't so amazing...  So I set that series aside and dived into the Fall of Angels trilogy.  Branded came out in March of 2010 and Forsaken came out in December of 2010.  Right in the middle of wrapping up Forsaken I got the idea for Eden and it refused to be quiet so I wrote it and it released in June 2011.  Vindicated, the last book in the Fall of Angels series will release late this year as well.

I've learned so much over the last few years.  I never thought I could do this all on my own and now I am and I'm loving it!  I've met so many amazing people, gotten so much support and love!

I thank you all for allowing me to live out my dream. This never would have been possible without all of you.
