Welcome to my little corner of the internet! Come join me on my author journey!

Books

My greatest desire is to bring entertaining stories into the world and I hope that my imagination will inspire yours.

Conversation

Whether it be discussing books, writing, or life in general, I'd love to connect with you and maybe chat a bit.

Photography

After writing, my second passion is photography and I'm excited to be able to share some of my work with you on this site.

“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”
– Dr Seuss

MY DRIVING PRINCIPLES

Patience

Anything worth having or doing usually takes a lot of work and it's going to require a significant amount of patience before you'll get where you want to go.

Perseverance

No matter what, you must keep going. This applies to everything in life. Whatever the issue, keep moving forward.

Possibility

Anything is possible. Believing that you can is the first step. Knowing that you will comes from trusting in your abilities and making the choice to continue on.

WIP QUICK LOOK

A young man struggles with strange dreams throughout his formative years, causing him to feel even more isolated from his peers than usual when the dreams begin to affect him during the waking hours. As he gets older, and the divide between himself and others only seems to grow, he begins to wonder if the dreams are more than just dreams.

When he loses someone he cares about, he returns to his childhood home and finally unlocks the secret that’s plagued him for years. Confronted with this new knowledge, he must decide whether he’s willing to let go of all he knows and face untold dangers for the chance to be a part of something he never thought possible, or remain safely behind and face a future of solitude.

A debut novel, and the first in a New Adult Fantasy trilogy.

FEATURED AUTHOR

Check out this video from Bethany Atazadeh!

I really enjoyed this video because there are some hilarious truths in it! Authors tend to get some very personal or nosy questions when people find out we’ve written a book and it can be hard to know how to respond gracefully. These amazing ladies tackle this topic with a bit of humor for your enjoyment. Whether you’re an author or not, it’s worth a  watch!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
