About Me

I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska but currently live on Bainbridge Island with my husband, amazing daughter and two fuzzies (cats). 


I am a lover and writer of poetry and picture books with a M.A. in Theoretical Psychology.  


Reading wasn't always an easy part of my life. I loved books, and my imagination knew no boundaries. But, as a dyslexic, reading was a challenge.


Now, as a writer and avid reader, it is important for me to bridge gaps, hand out support, and remove the stigma for all with learning disabilities.

My desire as a writer, beyond entertaining readers is to connect and shower other's lives with hope by illuminating the beauty of our differences as gifts.
