About Me

I live in Northern Virginia with my wonderful husband, three daughters, and two sweet rescue dogs. If you ever need to find me, I’m typically on some soccer field freezing in the cold or roasting under the sun—there never seems to be an in-between. But being a mom to athletic girls is the best!

I also spend a lot of time behind my computer writing contemporary stories. In the past I’ve worked as a professional art therapist and licensed counselor, but creative writing and literature have always been a huge part of my life. I have an endless stack of journals and an undergrad English degree to prove it. I am fascinated by psychology and love to write about complex relationships.

Put a gel pen in my hand and I’ll doodle on anything. I’ll try any form of art—and I’ve tried most (I keep my own Michael’s store in our basement, so my husband says)—but I’m still iffy on knitting.

Writing is my favorite art, though.
