Originally from Michigan, I currently live in North Carolina. As a misplaced Northerner, I enjoy unsweet tea year 'round. It's my creative writing juice. Hawaii is my favorite vacation destination and readers often comment about wanting to visit Oahu after reading Kalena. I believe in the good in people, even when I shouldn't. I am a quote junkie. They prove that at one time, someone else out there knew exactly what I was feeling. I love the beach. There's no greater peace than feeling the sand between your toes and the salty hair blowing your hair.
It all began with a dream that came out of nowhere. I couldn't get it out of my head and finally I wrote it down. I haven't stopped writing since. Every chapter starting with my 2nd novel begins with a quote that relates to the chapter. I'm so indescribably me. I don't write for the perfect story, I write to achieve the perfect feeling. It's a high you want to give the readers, to get them emotionally involved in the story. It's not about the perfect setting or the perfect story, it's about the perfection of that moment...when the reader can actually feel what the character is feeling at that exact moment.
