About Me

I live in Northern Utah with my husband and my son. I enjoy being outdoors, and I balance my love for running with a love for all things dessert. My little family likes to be on the go, so you’ll probably find us at the zoo, on a hike, or skipping rocks on the river. There are usually crumbs on the kitchen counters, dishes in the sink, and toys on the floor while my family and I are out playing.

My love for writing came quickly and unexpectedly. Now I can’t imagine doing anything else. I’m the proud author of three published books with more in the works. My latest release, The Whipserer’s Wish, is a multi-awarded novel. Check out the awards tab on my website to learn more. I’m a member of the Storymakers Guild, The League of Utah Writers, and ACFW. I love to chat with students and aspiring writers. If you want to talk writing or reading, don’t hesitate to reach out!

More than anything, I love my family, and I’m grateful for the encouragement and support they’ve given me in my many (MANY!) wild ideas.
